Help provide legal services and scientific advice to people from all walks of life seeking to safeguard our precious water sources, defend our wildest places, and protect our natural and built environment.

The Environmental Defenders Office gives expert legal advice and runs groundbreaking cases to protect our climate, communities, and iconic plants and animals.

With the support of people like you, we design better laws to solve our most pressing problems, and empower people to use the law to protect our environment and everything that depends on it for survival.

As our unique Australian animals and plants face extinction and global warming begins to really bite, eight Environmental Defenders Offices around the country have joined forces to unite as a single, stronger, truly national Environmental Defenders Office.

Together, with your support, our team of environmental law experts is working with passion and dedication to fight the legal battles needed to keep our climate safe and our communities healthy.

But there’s no time to waste – we need your help today! Your tax-deductible donation to the Environmental Defence Fund will help people fighting for environmental justice right across Australia and the South Pacific.

Make your one-off tax-deductible donation using the form on this page, or donate by PayPal here.

You can also become a Friend of the EDO with a monthly gift, raise money for our work in your community or workplace,  take part in an event, invest in one of our programs with a major gift, or leave a lasting legacy with a gift in your will.
