The Wilderness Society is a community-based environmental advocacy organisation whose mission is protecting, promoting and restoring wilderness and natural processes across Australia for the survival and ongoing evolution of life on Earth.

Since its formation in 1976, The Wilderness Society has achieved the secure protection of over eight million hectares of wilderness and other high conservation value areas in Australia, including:

– Kakadu

– The Daintree

– Kangaroo Island

– South West Tasmania

– Australia’s sub-Antarctic Islands

– Victoria’s mallee woodlands

– Cape York wilderness

The Sydney campaign centre is currently working to protect the rivers of NSW and to see an end to the destruction of our native forests across Australia.

The Wilderness Society accepts no funds from governments or business and we are 100% funded by individuals.
