Whitsunday Conservation Council

Our story

The Whitsunday Conservation Council is a large group of like-minded people who are concerned about our environment – its future and in all its forms – from the reef on our doorstep to the unique tropical rainforests and endangered fauna.

At its inaugural get together on 16th August 2019, members from the community turned up from all walks of conservation: flora/fauna and the reef with one vibrant voice – to have an umbrella group that worked together to conserve our environment.

On May 7, 2020 the WCC became an incorporated association and on May 28 WCC became an ACNC registered charity.

In June 2021 it reached over 1,000 members and supporters.  An amazing achievement for such a small regional population base.

WCC is a member of the following organisations: Queensland Conservation Council Inc,  Queensland Water and Land Carers Inc and Tourism Whitsunday Ltd.

We are privileged to have the Great Barrier Reef on our doorstep and lots of unique fauna (including the endangered Proserpine Rock Wallaby) and flora (including the near endangered Brachychiton Compactus or Whitsunday Bottle Tree). The Whitsunday Bottle Tree is incorporated in our logo.

We join the many other Conservation Councils who are peak environmental bodies working hard to protect, conserve and sustain our beautiful natural environments.
