About ARCS

Founded in 1982, the Australian Rainforest Conservation Society (ARCS) is a national, non-government, not-for-profit organisation with headquarters in Brisbane. Its goals are to protect, repair and restore the rainforests of Australia through research, lobbying, public education and grass-roots support.

In 2021, ARCS amended objects of the association's Rules to include protection of all native forests and mitigation of climate change.

ARCS has succeeded in achieving protection for large areas of Australia’s rainforests and continues to play a leading role in the ongoing work required to conserve this rainforest heritage.

ARCS has members throughout Australia and overseas.
