Will you stand with the people of Narrabri and others against a gas-fuelled climate crisis?

All around Australia, communities are acting to protect their precious water and wildlife from new gas extraction projects and taking action to prevent developments that will increase greenhouse gas emissions and drive dangerous climate change.

From Traditional Owners against fracking in the Northern Territory, to coastal NSW residents against offshore drilling, and communities in the Simpson Desert looking for advice against gas exploration, your donations support a legal line of defence for some of Australia’s most unique and iconic places.

But this new front in the battle to prevent a gas-fuelled climate catastrophe comes as funding for EDO has never been more uncertain.

Earlier this year, for the first time, the EDO did not receive its regular grant from the New South Wales Public Purpose Fund, while the Queensland LNP said it would strip away our funding if it wins government at the end of October.

We need your help! Your tax-deductible donation to the Environmental Defence Fund will help people resist the impacts of new gas projects right across Australia and the South Pacific.
