Protecting Country

Healthy coasts, rivers, deserts, wetlands and natural landscapes are central to the way of Northern Territory life, our culture and our livelihoods. Protecting this diverse landscape against the threats from climate change, weed species like Buffel grass, and inappropriate industrial developments is at the core of the work of ALEC.
