We've fixed it!

Some of you may have noticed that our payment portal has been down, across the ALEC site and the Alice Springs Community Garden site. For the last few weeks, we have been unable to process any one-off or recurring donations, fees or membership payments. We apologise for any frustration this may have caused.

We've fixed the problem, and recurring payments should have automatically restarted.

There's no better time to support ALEC - Coronavirus may have changed the way we work, but it hasn't stopped us fighting to protect nature.

We're physically distant but we are even more connected. We've got eyes trained on governments and industry to make sure they don't do anything sneaky. We're working with the community to support those who need help, build resilience and make sure vital initiatives like the Alice Springs Community Garden continue to flourish.

We're working on new policies to protect nature - like an NT Climate Act. We're making sure climate change is central to all our work and supporting other organisations to do the same, across Central Australia and beyond. We're pushing renewable energy infrastructure forward and embedding it in the community.

We're working from home, to protect our shared home - planet earth.

Thank you for your continued support in this time of immense change and growth.
