Community conservation

Brisbane City Council is committed to keeping Brisbane clean, green and sustainable, and values your help to protect more than 2500 plant and animal species that make Brisbane the most biodiverse capital city in Australia. Find out how you can contribute to preserve your local environment through Brisbane City Council’s Community Conservation Partnerships Program.
