Australian Christian environmentalism

A simple question: are there any Australian Christian organisations with a particular focus on ecological issues? I know that TEAR Australia has been developing a climate change initiative in recent years and that some are talking about starting an A Rocha group. Any others?

Byron, the crew at A Rocha Aotearoa New Zealand (http://www.arocha.org/nz-en/190-DSY.html) may be able to help you with info about this.
