Welcome to Big Scrub Landcare. The voice of the rainforest.
Who we are
Our mission is to restore and care for our critically endangered rainforest. Founded in 1992, we are one of the largest and most successful Landcare groups in the country.
We are the voice of the rainforest. We talk to and work with governments, business, private landholders, community organisations and the community generally on our unique lowland subtropical rainforest, it’s magnificent biodiversity, its restoration and ongoing care.
About the Big Scrub
The Big Scrub was the largest expanse of lowland subtropical rainforest in Australia covering an area of approximately 75,00 hectares on rich volcanic and alluvial soils between Byron Bay, Ballina and Lismore.
Tragically it was cleared for agriculture and by 1900 only one percent remained in the form of 100 small remnants scattered across a largely cleared landscape.
