Member Groups

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.

    hi guys, can anything be done about all the logging that’s going on up Coldwater Creek Road, Nana Glen? It’s been going on for months and there’s up to 15 loads a day of logs going out of that area. They are ripping the forest to bits and not cleaning it up and it looks terrible and is still going on. It’s such a disgrace and so many of the residents are complaining about it, we’ve even rung up council and yet they keep doing it and raping our beautiful forests and areas.
