ORIS WATCH

Oris watch by Kristian Dowling, Calibre

AMCS is delighted to be partnering with Oris for their new Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition II watch!

To help protect the Great Barrier Reef, Oris will make a donation to our vital campaign work, funded by sales of this limited edition diver’s watch.

The watch is stunning, befitting of our glorious Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world.

The support of Oris puts wind in our sails and helps our work to protect Australia’s most precious natural asset. It is under pressure from so many fronts, but with businesses like Oris helping to fund our work to protect it, our campaign in its defence continues. Check it out!

Choose Coral Not Coal

Coral bleaching by Bridie Allan

A destructive underwater heatwave is causing coral bleaching along the length of the Great Barrier Reef.

Coral bleaching is an alarming symptom of rising sea temperatures and a sign that the ocean is struggling to carry the burden of global warming.

The mining and burning of coal is the biggest contributor to Australia’s emissions.

Please sign the petition asking Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull for a rapid transition to renewables.

Ban shark finning

From shark fisheries in the Great Barrier Reef to our southern seas, Australia is still sending shark fins overseas by the tonne.

And we’re importing fins from countries with poorer fishing regulations than our own, countries that cruelly cut off the fins of sharks while they're still alive and dump the bodies overboard.

It is unacceptable and it has got to stop! Please sign our petition.
