Cairns & Far North Environment Centre

Formed by concerned community groups in 1981, CAFNEC works to protect the environment by enhancing the capacity of local groups and community members to act for conservation, strengthening networks within FNQ, facilitating region-wide cooperation to identify and coordinate action on issues of regional significance and when necessary, engaging in campaigns that are strategically important for the region.

CAFNEC is a not-for-profit incorporated association which acts as conservation council for the region from Cardwell north to Torres Strait and from the east coast to the Gulf of Carpentaria. It includes both the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics World Heritage Areas as well as many other spectacular natural landscapes and a wide variety of unique wildlife. The FNQ environment needs a strong voice, and the people of FNQ who know, love and live in the region are the best ones to be that voice.

Like many not-for-profit organisations, we have a small number of staff that keep things ticking along but volunteers, members and donors are the real power behind the organisation so the more we have, the more we can do.
