Friends of the Earth Far North Queensland (FoE FNQ) was formed in 2005, originally known as FoE Kuranda. Brought together by concern about land clearing for a new highway, we now work regionally with other local and national groups on a wide range of issues.
Our aims are:
- To lobby for carbon neutral economies locally, regionally and nationally.
- To raise awareness of the positive actions communities can take on climate change.
- To support communities nationally and internationally in adapting to climate induced natural disasters.
- To work for climate justice.
- To reverse the loss of biodiversity and prevent the extinction of vulnerable, threatened and endangered species of flora and fauna - especially keystone species such as the southern cassowary and flying foxes, the seed dispersal agents of the tropical rainforests.
- To work with and lobby local, State and Federal Governments for sustainable town and regional planning, so preventing any more habitat fragmentation and destruction.
- To protect watercourses and restore them back to clean, healthy and living ecosystems.
- To enhance soil health by campaigning for better agricultural practices and promoting regenerative agriculture.
- To campaign for First Nations' land rights and recognition and restitution of past injustices.
- To work for socially inclusive communities that are safe places for everyone.
