The Gippsland Lakes, a large beautiful network of lakes in Victoria, Australia. A haven for many threatened and endangered species of birds and marine life. Home of First Nations people Gunaikurnai and the famous Burrunan Dolphins, and a boating and watersports mecca.

Friends of Gippsland Lakes is a volunteer, non profit group of citizens that live locally, or are just interested in preserving them for future generations. The Lakes are under constant threat by climate change, development, increased population pressures, upstream influences such as agriculture, mining, bushfires and forestry, and fragmented and uncoordinated management.

However we believe more is gained with a a positive and co-operative approach, based on evidential data and science. We work with Traditional Owners and the various Government agencies and other conservation groups that are stakeholders in the Lakes future, to effect changes in attitudes and help balance the needs of various interested parties.
