About Sutherland Shire Environment Centre

We are an independent, not-for-profit, community organisation actively involved in a wide range of projects aimed at maintaining the natural beauty and character of our Shire, and surrounding waterways and parks. For a small organisation we do a lot, but our Centre is run by volunteers.  Sutherland Shire would not have an environment centre, and none of our campaigns or advocacy would be possible without the commitment and care of members of the community.

One current focus includes advocating for koala and wildlife corridors around the Shire. Another campaign seeks to protect our water supply from the coal mining taking place directly underneath Woronora Reservoir: 10,700 people signed our recent petition calling for the mining to be stopped.
Our members from the SO Shire group aim to halt pollution from plastic and microplastics washing up around our beaches and waterways.

Our Sunny Shire and Plastic Free Sutherland Shire groups can provide general advice about solar energy, batteries, and sustainable practices.  We support environmental education programs, and put in a range of submissions about issues of environmental concern.

If you are interested in finding out more, or helping, please get in touch!

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this Land, the Dharawal people, who have cared and continue to care for country.  We recognise that Aboriginal Sovereignty has never been ceded.  It is our goal to build restorative relations between peoples, and we pay our respect to their elders past, present, and emerging.
