Sutherland Shire Environment Centre
The Sutherland Shire Environment Centre (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 the Annual General Meeting by members of the Association. SSEC was set up in 1991 by concerned Shire residents. The objects of SSEC are:
- 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
- to develop and conduct environmental education initiatives, to encourage behavioural change to achieve a sustainable environment in the Sutherland Shire and its bio-regions.
