"Be the change you want to see in the world."
- Mahatma Gandhi.
In 1976 a small group of Australians, including a young man named Bob Brown, came together at a bush property in Liffey, Tasmania, to discuss how they might take action to prevent the destruction of amazing wilderness areas they knew and loved.
Thus, the Wilderness Society was founded on the principle that good people, acting together, can embody the change they wish to see in the world.
Subsequent decades have proven this theory right time and again and, together, we’ve achieved some incredible wins for nature.
But as the threats to our environment grow, so do does our need for people who will stand with us and demand that our country’s most beautiful and iconic places be protected for the benefit of Australians now, and in the years to come.
