About us 

Our story starts in the 60's, when a group of Victorians joined forces to keep the Little Desert from becoming an agricultural development. Wonder of wonders this cherished landscape was spared and the Little Desert National Park was established. It was a small victory for Victoria's natural environment. 

The funny thing about small victories is they make you feel empowered. They make you want to take on more challenges. Bigger ones. Tougher ones. And that's how Environment Victoria got started.

Now, over 40 years later, we're one of Australia's leading environment groups, independent and not for profit.

We’re environmental advocates, speaking up for our environment and helping others do the same. But there’s no shortage of challenges ahead so we’d love you to join our team to safeguard our environment and the future.
