|Why we care
A world where animals and people are thriving in a healthy climate.
We lead with those who love, care for and work with animals to achieve urgent action on climate change.
We mobilise the veterinary profession and broader animal care community to tackle the climate crisis within and beyond our sector.
We provide opportunities for vets, vet nurses, veterinary support staff and the broader animal care community to tackle the climate crisis both within and beyond veterinary practice.
We help clinics reduce their emissions, support our members to educate and engage people within their own circles of influence, and advocate for policies that reduce Australia’s climate pollution at local, state and federal levels.
We mobilise the veterinary profession and animal care community to advocate for and take climate action. Our objectives are for the veterinary profession and animal care community to:
We have four full-time staff members who are responsible for executing the day-to-day of our organisation, and who in turn supports and is supported by multiple volunteer teams.
Veterinarians for Climate Action is a Company Limited by Guarantee and is registered as a charity with the ACNC. We are governed by a Board of Directors, which is in turn elected by a group of approximately forty formal members. Our Board of Directors is responsible for providing leadership and direction to us and bears ultimate legal responsibility.
We exist primarily as a result of generous donations from people like yourself. To supplement this, we also apply for various grants and have sponsorship opportunities for our Climate Care Program.
