    URGENT APPEAL 

    SAVE WA’s ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENDER: DONATE OR JOIN TODAY

    For nearly twenty years, the Environmental Defender’s Office WA (Inc.) has provided specialised legal services on public interest environmental law matters to Western Australians for little or no cost.  We’ve been at the forefront of crucial legal fights to protect WA’s unique biodiversity and fragile ecosystems.

    The Commonwealth has refused to fund EDOs beyond June 2015.  EDOWA urgently needs your help - NOW.  We cannot continue for long without your help.  

    We need to raise $100,000 to ensure we can continue operating. Help us by donating or becoming a member.
