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!
In 2012, the Australian Government created the largest offshore network of marine sanctuaries in the world.
But now every sanctuary we secured is at risk. The Abbott Government has just announced a review into these protected areas.
This ignores the science, community support, consultation and over a decade of bipartisan support for marine sanctuaries.
It’s time to send an SOS to your MP.
IF YOU love seafood, chances are you often eat fish that isn't quite what you think it is.
The Queensland Government is being urged to rethink its shark netting program after the eighth whale of the migration season was trapped off Rainbow Beach on the Cooloola Coast yesterday.
AN INDIAN environmentalist engaged in a legal battle with the Queensland Government will speak at the Airlie Beach Flotilla for the Reef this Sunday, October 19.
When the Premier of Western Australia announced a shark cull last year, he wasn't counting on the fierce opposition from all of us. Tens of thousands of AMCS supporters signed petitions, attended protests, crowd funded a billboard, spoke out in the media, wrote letters, emailed, called and worked tirelessly to save our sharks.
After assessing the shark cull, the WA Environmental Protection Authority has announced they are rejecting the cull. This is a huge victory - for people power, sharks, and healthy oceans.
Following the EPA's announcement, the WA Premier has confirmed the drum lines won’t be going in the water this summer. But he has made worrying noises about a ‘catch and kill’ policy for large sharks seen swimming off the WA coastline. Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt is also currently considering the EPA's report. We will be keeping a very close watch. Stay tuned!
