The North Coast Environment Council is comprised of many groups and individual members throughout the region who have a deep interest in our planet’s natural systems and our relationship with them. The more time we spend in areas where nature thrives, the more we want to protect it. Please find out what our different members are up to by following the links to their stories. The North Coast is rich in environmental stewardship from all walks of life and the NCEC is a member of the Nature Conservation Council of NSW. Through all these organisations, threatened animals and living landscapes are being given a voice. Communities are standing together to oppose invasive mining operations. More sensible policy in energy, sustainability and planning are agitated for. What you hear in the news about environmental issues is often because one of these groups researched the issues, raised awareness and lobbied for change to protect people from being poisoned or threatened species from going extinct. That's why we hope our member list grows so that we can be more effective in improving our planet’s life support systems.

Ballina Environment Society
The Bellingen Environment Centre maintains an independent voice and funding base through its presentation of the Bi Annual Plant Fair Events. The Centre contributes to the campaigns on the regional, national and global issues of our time such as climate change, protecting koala and Threatened Species habitat and expanding the network of marine sanctuaries.
The Centre is built and owned by “Sustainable Earth Projects Ltd", a not-for profit company formed by the Bellingen Community. The building was the first business in the Bellingen Shire to be powered by solar, and the Centre is available to any member undertaking an environmental campaign or education project.
