Friends of the Earth Australia is a national federation composed of independent member groups.
Friends of the Earth Australia has no bosses. Members of the federation remain autonomous in the way that they do their campaign work, their budgeting, and the way they structure themselves.
Friends of the Earth often auspices a project that we do not have the resources or capacity to work on within our organisation but who's work we admire and support. See our list of current auspices below.

Formed in 1997, the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (formerly the Alliance Against Uranium) brings together Aboriginal people and relevant civil society groups concerned about existing or proposed nuclear developments in Australia, particularly on Aboriginal homelands.
Currently, Aboriginal communities face a wave of uranium exploration, several proposed new uranium mines, and a proposed national nuclear waste dump.
