The Nature Conservation Council of New South Wales (NCC), the state’s leading environmental advocacy organisation, has recognised grassroots conservation groups and individuals in the NSW Environment Awards.

The NSW Environment Awards highlights and supports the good work for nature protection taking place across the state.

“There are so many amazing grassroots campaigns across NSW protecting the places we love,” said Jacqui Mumford, CEO of Nature Conservation Council NSW.

“The environment movement is made up of countless volunteers who dedicate their time, energy and effort to protecting the stunning natural places of NSW. That is definitely worth celebrating.”

“All those nominated and selected as winners demonstrate the heart and drive that goes into fighting the good fight. It’s not always an easy path to take and so it’s vital that we honour the determination needed to keep showing up to protect nature.”

As the peak body for two hundred environment groups, Nature Conservation Council NSW plays a role in supporting on-the-ground local groups to connect to the broader environment movement.
