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
