Get off the beaten track and escape to the beautiful Helena Aurora Ranges this Queen's Birthday long weekend. 

The Helena Aurora Range (Bungalbin) is characterised by its large banded ironstone rocks, stretches of eucalypt woodland and tall inland whitegums. From the top of the range you’re treated to unspoilt views of our Great Western Woodlands for as far as the eye can see.

This camping experience is the perfect opportunity to see for yourself why this pristine and unique part of the world is worth protecting and why we’re calling for it to become a national park. 

Please RSVP below.

We ask all Camping Trip attendees to become a member of the Wilderness Society. Please let us know if you are unable to do so.

Deforestation Door Canvassing

Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 10:00 AM · 11 rsvps
TBA in Brisbane, Australia

ZDQLD_RGB.jpg

There is a deforestation crisis in QLD killing our wildlife, damaging our reef, and contributing to climate change, but together we can stop it! When people learn about this issue they are outraged and demand change...and that's our job...to tell them.

We will be door knocking in the areas of Mount Ommaney and Mansfield every second Sunday, and we need your help. Training and resources will be provided and we promise you will have fun, meet new friends, and really feel like you have contributed to positive change, because you will have. Your team leaders are all experienced door knockers and will be there to guide and mentor you.

We will meet onsite at 10am (you will be notified of the meeting point), have something to eat and run through some training together and then set off to change the world :) We will then come back together at about 1pm and will do a quick debrief before parting ways at 1:30pm. 

These days are a great way for anyone to make a contribution, no matter your age or experience. We can't wait to see you there!

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact Lead Organiser Kaine Johnson on 0499 092 565.

Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 05:30 PM · 13 rsvps
Launceston Campaign Centre in Launceston, Australia

You're warmly invited to the Opening of the The Davey Street Collection at the Launceston Campaign Centre, 174 Charles Street, September 28th at 5.30pm.

Join local landscape painter Angus Douglas to open this event and share in a uniquely Tasmanian art collection, inspired by conservation and the decades of work by so many great people.

DAVEY_ST_COLLECTION_FB_INVITE_784_x_295_px_(2).jpg

Over 40 years of campaigns to protect Tasmania’s wild places, the Wilderness Society has been gifted some very special works of art. For decades, they have hung in the Davey Street Campaign Center.  But, with a win over the pulp mill and a spring clean in Launceston, we’re putting them on show to celebrate and re-launch a revitalised northern campaign hub.

From the Franklin to Frenchman’s Cap, Lake Pedder to the Florentine, the collection features Tasmanian icons like Max Angus, Elspeth Vaughan and Val Whatley, with additional works by national artists including Lloyd Rees and Catherine Rogers, and many others.


Watch my Wilderness Training

Tuesday, October 03, 2017 at 06:00 PM
The Wilderness Society Brisbane in South Brisbane, Australia

Over the past four years alone, over one million hectares has been cleared in Queensland alone—that’s an area the size of the Gabba Stadium being destroyed every three minutes.

Watch My Wilderness (WMW) is a civil science application initiative developed in order to track and record the clearing of bushland across Queensland. The applications format allows for a large number of individuals to complete a task that would take months of time for an individual.  

Join the Watch my Wilderness team and help find deforestation hotspots in Queensland!

image001.png

This training will be a comprehensive Watch my Wilderness app overview for key interested volunteers in Brisbane and remote volunteers online. A presentation will be delivered by campaign staff working in the campaign to end deforestation in Queensland. Learn how to:

  • Use the WMW application
  • Find hotspots for clearing and refer them to campaign staff
  • Analyse clearing under existing state and federal legislation. 

The aim is to build a small team of committed volunteers willing to dedicate 1-2 hours a fortnight to search for clearing.
