One of Friends of the Earth's primary objectives is to conserve, restore, and protect land and water. This task is the responsibility of every Australian, just as it has been for the First Nation peoples of this continent for millennia. Friends of the Earth helps communities to resist the destruction of sacred land, native forests and habitat, rivers and waterways, and other places we love.
This means that we do not see nature as separate to human society, but rather seek to transform our society to one that lives in harmony with the land as well ensuring that life-giving water is treated with the value it deserves.
For decades Friends of the Earth have been working with Traditional Owners and communities to resist the expansion of the nuclear industry in Australia. The entire cycle - mining, power, weapons and waste - must be stopped for the protection of country, land and water.
