The Wide Bay Burnett Environment Council Inc (WBBEC) is an A-Political, Not-for-Profit Environmental Advocacy Organisation, based in Maryborough Queensland.

Our motto is ‘Protecting the region’s biodiversity for the future’ and we aim to achieve that via a range of advocacy based approaches including:

    • Community education campaigns highlighting the importance of environmental protection via television/ radio/print/and social media, publications, workshops, public information sessions, documentary screenings, information stalls and interactive presentations at early childhood centres
    • Providing expert advice to all levels of government via participation and representation on various technical working groups, planning committees, Ministerial Roundtable conferences and providing submissions on proposed, and/or amendments to, relevant government policies and legislation
    • Responding to community requests to initiate investigations into potential impacts to the environment from unlawful activities, proposed development, breaches of approval conditions/environmental legislation from existing development and/or land and resource uses and;
    • Facilitating communication between multiple local community/landcare/catchment care/wildlife protection groups, the Environment Council and the broader Conservation Sector across Queensland

  1. Hello. I’m a recent (six months ago) arrival to Pialba. Now that I’ve settled in I’d like to get involved in some sort of environmental/conservation activity. Could you please advise me on how to become a member of WBBEC.
