Sutherland Shire Environment Centre

SSEC is self-funded and is not affiliated with any political parties, supporting the community to protect our local environment.

Sutherland Shire Environment Centre (SSEC) was set up in 1991 by concerned Shire residents. The objects of SSEC are

1. to act to defend the environment of the Sutherland Shire and associated bio-regions, by supporting members and local community organisations in their efforts to protect and improve their local areas
2. to develop and conduct environmental education initiatives, to encourage behavioural change to achieve a sustainable environment in the Sutherland Shire and its bio-regions.

SSEC is a totally independent, non-government community organisation. It is an incorporated Association guided by a constitution and governed by a Board elected at an Annual General Meeting by members of the Association.
