AMCS is the voice for Australia’s oceans. They are Australia’s only national charity dedicated solely to protecting our precious ocean wildlife – a community of ocean lovers across the nation working for healthy seas.
They are an independent charity staffed by a committed group of scientists, educators, and passionate advocates who have defended Australia’s oceans for over 55 years. Their paid and volunteer staff work every day to protect our coasts and oceans.
AMCS works on the significant issues that risk our ocean wildlife. They have protected critical ocean ecosystems with marine reserves around the nation, including Ningaloo and the Great Barrier Reef. They have led the movement to ban whaling, stop supertrawlers, and protect endangered species like the Australian Sea Lion. Their community of ocean lovers saves our oceans every day.
Our oceans are in peril. Climate change is heating our oceans and killing the coral homes of fish and turtles. Industrial-scale fishing threatens the future of our fish stocks and is killing our threatened and endangered animals – including dolphins, turtles, and sharks. And every day, toxic plastic pollution flows into our oceans, choking our marine life.
You, as a delegator, can help turn the tide on plastic pollution.
Everyone deserves clean, healthy oceans full of life. But right now, plastic pollution is flowing into our oceans at an alarming rate, entangling and suffocating our marine life. Once the plastic is in the sea, it doesn’t go away; marine animals are suffering from either becoming tangled up or eating it, leading to suffocation and starvation. Together we must turn the tide on plastic pollution. We must choose to refuse plastic and stop it at the source.
We can save our oceans from the threat of plastic pollution, but we can only do it together. With your help, we will create a better, cleaner future for our planet and our oceans.
