Albury Conservation Company (ACC) was established in 2006 to help protect and enhance the natural environment of Albury Wodonga, Australia's 20th largest city. ACC's vision is for Albury Wodonga to become a regional city 'blueprint' for successfully balancing urban growth with the protection of threatened species.
ACC’s mission is to maintain viable populations of threatened species through scientific research, strategic on-ground conservation actions and collaborating with key stakeholders directly responsible for conserving biodiversity. Central to our mission is strategic engagement with Albury and Wodonga Councils and local communities to raise awareness and build capacity to respond to biodiversity threats.
ACC is a not-for-profit registered charity with a strong history as a driver of local threatened species research and conservation. ACC has funded and delivered many un-precedented local conservation projects in partnership with funding bodies and philanthropic foundations, key stakeholders and local communities. In addition to the Albury Wodonga Threatened Species Monitoring Program (since 2018) and Albury Wodonga NatureMapr citizen science platform (established in 2020), ACC has funded and facilitated threatened species research (e.g. Sloanes Froglet, Squirrel Glider), delivered innovative conservation initiatives (e.g. Hollow-bearing tree mapping project, Thurgoona Men’s Shed Nest box Program) and pro-actively engaged and shared information with key audiences.
Albury Conservation Company is about to embark on a new phase in its development with assured funding from a number of major funding bodies and is looking to engage a new Executive Officer to guide the organisation through this important phase.
