Help us take bold climate action
When you give generously today, you are helping to protect the Sunshine Coast's unique wildlife and natural wonders.
This year we took bold action on climate change. On World Environment Day (June 5th) we declared a climate emergency and developed a climate emergency action plan that outlines the urgent action SCEC is taking to address the climate emergency. Working with the community and Urgent Climate Action Network Sunshine Coast (UCANSC), we were instrumental in getting the Sunshine Coast Council to acknowledge the climate emergency in a resolution on the 9th November. This is a big step for local climate action, Sunshine Coast Council is only the second council in Queensland to acknowledge the climate emergency.
For 41 years, the Sunshine Coast Environment Council has been the voice for the Sunshine Coast environment. From the hinterlands to the coast, SCEC has helped gazette many of the region's iconic National Parks to protect their outstanding conservation values, stood-up for the magnificent Marcus High Dunes in the face of unrelenting development to form the critical and biodiversity rich Maroochy-Noosa Wallum Corridor and expand the Noosa National Park.
Nature based solutions are critical to mitigating the effects of climate change and protecting remnant vegetation in bushland reserves, national parks, state forests and increasing urban wildlife corridors is a key focus of SCEC's work now and into the future.
We campaign for urgent action on climate change, marine conservation and protect nature by opposing inappropriate and ecologically destructive development. Our work and passion for this region and the planet continues unabated.
With your generous support, we will continue to be at the forefront of environmental advocacy for many years to come.
