Since TEC was establishment in 1972 our campaigners have worked tirelessly to protect the natural environment. The unique ecosystems which evolved over millenia across the Australian continent, including those that have survived European settlement and the introduction of Northern hemisphere agricultural practices, continue to come under threat from human activities and practices. TEC's goal is to reduce the impact of these activities to preserve the natural environment and all its processes so that it continues to function as a haven for a diverse multitude of flora and fauna, while providing clean air and water for everyone.
