We are a grass-roots organisation dedicated to supporting the Melbourne conservation community. We do this by strengthening networks, sharing knowledge and drawing attention to local conservation action.  

SCB Greater Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land, waters and skies of Greater Melbourne- the Wurundjeri, Wadawurrung, and Bunurong Peoples of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and acknowledge First Nations people as our first conservation scientists.
