We’re an independent, not-for-profit, non-government, community organisation actively involved in a wide range of projects aimed at greening the shire, environmental education, sustainable living and business and protecting against environmental threats.
Sutherland Shire Environment Centre has been working with the community since 1991 and have achieved some very significant gains for the environment in that time.
The objectives of the Sutherland Shire Environment Centre are:
- to act to defend the environment of the Sutherland Shire and associated bio-regions, by supporting members and local community organisations in their efforts to protect and improve their local areas
- to develop and conduct environmental education initiatives, to encourage behavioural change to achieve a sustainable environment in the Sutherland Shire and its bio-regions.
How we help

- Our members have years of campaigning experience and can offer invaluable advice.
- We can provide your community group with the administrative infrastructure you might need to achieve your environmental goals (ABN, bank account, tax deductibility, insurance).
- We can provide help spread your group’s message to the wider community via websites and social media.
- We can provide limited funding for expenses such as meeting room hire, posters, banners.
