Cashing In Sydney's Koalas

As Sydney's koala crisis deepens, and Labor and the Greens step up with electable solutions, TEC has been working with the Campbelltown community on a vision for the area that preserves this unique population, even as development escalates. Here is our update.

Teenagers For A Waste Free World

Game Of Throwns is a winner! But it's not the violent fantasy television series about climate change - it's one of the winners of TEC's latest awareness project WASTE NOT Mash It Up! which launched last week at the annual Youth Eco Summit at Sydney Olympic Park.

Council Win For Koalas

Saving Sydney's Koalas! A small local council has convinced a big developer about to impact the character and landscape of Western Sydney to incorporate koala protection in all future developments. Congratulations Wollondilly Council!

Water Politics Taps Out

TEC has objected to the economic rationalisation of Sydney Water at a time of global water stress on big cities and extreme drought across NSW. Long term sustainability must be the key goal of our water management utility, says Jeff Angel.

More Community Driven Wins

Communities across NSW are deploying solidarity, effective campaigning and due process to push back against developments that will negatively impact the health and wellness of their residents - and they are winning!

Traffic Versus Wildlife

The NSW Department of Planning is in hot water over koala corridors as massive development proposals in Western Sydney are rushed through. Locals and wildlife carers want escape routes for native fauna prioritised - including for humans! 

Plastic Politics Follies

A consumer driven revolt against excessive packaging has convinced the big supermarkets to ban the bag. With environment ministers due to meet in the next few months, TEC says the bag ban is not enough! 

Koalas In Court

A small community group spent several days in court last week in an attempt to derail a development proposal which will destroy one of Sydney's most historic and biodiverse areas of bushland. Saul Deane, TEC's Urban Sustainability Coordinator and Koala Campaigner was there.

Winter Appeal

Total Environment Centre's record as an outstanding advocate for our natural resources is indomitable! Why not find out exactly what your donation means to our vital work? We have bold new campaign objectives to share.

Killer Koala Rally

Over 400 people expressed their alarm at rezoning of Western Sydney bushland which will negatively impact NSW’s last healthy populations of wild koalas at a rally on Sunday. TEC was there!

Thumbs Up For Green Guide

TEC's Green Electricity Guide, which rates the most renewable, least polluting energy retailers, has been given a top rating itself by Choice Magazine!

Energy Market Forces

Australia's energy future is already being shaped by market forces, but the Turnbull government has decided to interrupt the natural rise of renewable energy with its recent bullying of AGL.
