About us

The primary aims of the Society are to stimulate interest in Australian flora and fauna; foster an understanding of the need to conserve the natural environment, and cooperate with other organisations in protecting the environment.

 

Oatley Flora and Fauna Conservation Society works to keep our district clean and green by:

  • Being an independent local watchdog over actions of local Councils, government agencies and developers.

  • Providing a forum for members to express their environmental concerns to local, state and national governments.

  • Campaigning against inappropriate tree removal and other environmental damage in our suburbs.

  • Providing environmentally-focussed feedback to local Councils on significant developments and management plans.

  • Publishing educational materials including Birds of Oatley Park, Native Plants of Oatley and producing a monthly newsletter to keep members informed about local environmental issues, as well as conservation issues in the wider community.

  • Supporting environmental campaigns, such as conservation of urban bushland and protection of the Georges River catchment.

  • Making representations to Members of Parliament on important local environmental issues.

  • Investigating and reporting environmental problems such as pollution and habitat destruction.

  • Working with other conservation bodies, such as the Georges River Combined Councils, Georges River Environmental Alliance, Total Environment Centre.
