Buller Conservation Group is an environmental organisation based in Westport on the West Coast of New Zealand.

The organisation was actively involved in supporting Native Forest Action's campaigns against Timberlands logging of native forest, and Solid Energy's pollution of the Waimangaroa River.

The organisation supports the Save Happy Valley Campaign against the open cast mining of coal being developed on Department of Conservation land. A key organiser of the group, Pete Lusk, stood down as spokesperson after harassment and threats from locals, culminating in a pipe bomb being left in his letterbox.[citation needed]
