The Australian Marine Conservation Society is Australia's only national charity dedicated exclusively to protecting ocean wildlife and their homes.
The seafood we choose today will decide the fate of our oceans tomorrow.
We all know that our oceans are vulnerable to overfishing. But the good news is, there's still plenty of great seafood that doesn't come with a heavy cost to our environment.
Australia’s Sustainable Seafood Guide has been revised, revamped and updated!
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef ecosystem on our blue planet, representing about 10% of all the world's coral reefs.
It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is dearly loved by locals and visitors alike.
AMCS has a long, proud history of fighting for the Great Barrier Reef. We played a critical role in establishing the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and World Heritage Area.
We're still there every step of the way asking the Queensland and Australian Governments to make decisions in the best interest of the Reef and its communities, rather than deals with the mining companies and big developers.
The future of the Reef hangs in the balance. Big decisions are being made that will have a lasting impact and ultimately determine if our Reef survives and thrives.
THE owners of the port at Hay Point have been forced to monitor for coral disease and implement an environmental management plan for a 378,000 cubic metre dredging and dumping project in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
Environmental targets 'disappointing'
New Zealand is taking the lead from Australia against Antarctic whaling, with a plan that could prevent the Japanese hunt from being renewed in late 2015.
Despite growing public and scientific opposition to their shark cull, the Western Australian Government has applied to extend the controversial program for three more years.
A further three years of the shark cull won't improve public safety, but it will have a devastating environmental cost.
If you live in WA, let your MP know you're opposed to shark culling.
If you live outside of WA, sign our petition to the Premier, Colin Barnett.
