Everybody benefits from environmental justice

Since Federal funding ceased in July 2014, EDO Tasmania has been reliant on donations and grants to keep delivering our services.

By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help us to continue to assist communities to protect Tasmania’s remarkable environment.  Give a little or give a lot, give once or set up a regular donation.  Every bit helps!givenowbuttontall2

Why donate?

Most of us agree that everybody has a right to clean air, access to water and a say in decisions that affect their local environment.  Our laws are supposed to protect those rights, but sometimes the laws get ignored, aren’t strong enough or are so complex that it’s hard for people to know what they can do.

That’s why EDO Tasmania is important.  Every day, we help Tasmanians to understand how environmental laws work and how they can make their voices heard.

We help landowners to protect their rights when dealing with mining companies.  We help community groups to protect local heritage buildings from demolition and much-loved forest reserves from being cleared.  We help farmers to navigate the complex rules around what they can, and cannot, do on their land.  We help residents concerned about contamination of their water supply or confused by the planning system.  We help defend threatened species that can’t defend themselves.

We fight to make sure environmental laws are complied with and governments are held to account for their decisions.

Where the laws are weak, we fight for better laws.  Where the laws are strong, we fight to preserve them.

No other community organisation in Tasmania does this work.  Without government funding, we need your support to help us to keep helping Tasmanians protect our places and our species, for everybody’s benefit.

(We’d like to keep in touch. When you donate to EDO Tasmania we’ll add you to our email communications.  Feel free to opt out of this at anytime.  We won’t be offended!)
