CAFNEC, as a regional conservation council, acts as a representative environment group for Far North Queensland. In this role we engage with environment groups from across FNQ, help raise their voice, provide campaign advice and support and facilitate connections between the variety of organisations in the region. In the same grain, our diverse member groups add value, knowledge and expertise to CAFNEC.
