The environment's legal team since 1992 - protecting the public interest - evening the odds

The EDO is an independent community legal centre specialising in public interest environmental law. We offer professional legal advice and (in a small number of cases) representation, law reform and policy work and community legal education.

The EDO defends the environment in a way that no other organisation can - as the environment's legal team! However, our services are at risk due to Federal government funding cuts. You can help support our work by becoming a member or donating to the EDO.
