The Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute works to conserve the Greater Blue Mountains Area and support its World Heritage values.

Extreme bushfires, habitat loss and species extinction threaten the unique ecosystems of the World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains Area. We work with local communities, universities, and government agencies to monitor and respond to these threats, developing innovative solutions for the complex challenges of conservation and sustainable living.

We acknowledge the Dharug, Gundungurra, Wanaruah, Wiradjuri, Darkinjung and Tharawal language groups as the traditional owners of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. 

The Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute is a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and is an Australian registered charity.
