Protecting the Central Queensland Environment since 1973. Capricorn Conservation Council (CCC) is the peak not-for-profit environmental advocacy organisation in Central Queensland. We are a community-based conservation group with a membership of people concerned about protecting and conserving nature.

Our office is located in Rockhampton; our working geographical boundary extends from the Capricorn Coast (including the Great Barrier Reef), West to the Northern Territory Border, North to the Mackay Regional Council southern boundary, and South to Gladstone. We are governed by a management committee consisting of a group of nine dedicated volunteers and employ one part-time Coordinator. We hold registered charity status and donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.

The Central Queensland environment is heavily impacted by mining, land clearing, agriculture, Coal Seam Gas, Liquified Natural Gas, and associated rail, dams, pipelines, and ports. The cumulative impacts of this growth and development create a great need for environmental advocacy in the region.
