Rise for the Oceans

AMCS is part of Brisbane Festival! For one night only, author Tim Winton, musicians Bernard Fanning and Katie Noonan, solo sailor Jessica Watson and author of The Reef - A Passionate History, Professor Iain McCalman and other special guests will edify, thrill, entertain and enlighten us with their hopes and fears for our oceans and reefs – and the extraordinary creatures that inhabit them.

Directed by Vivid Sydney Creative Director Ignatius Jones, the evening will celebrate this hidden universe using projections, illuminated sculptures, dazzling light and animated art.

Be quick as the show is a special one night only event!

Save our snubfin dolphins and the Great Barrier Reef

Your donation today can help stop the coal industry from building a mega port at Abbot Point on the Great Barrier Reef coast, which is in the middle of critical snubfin dolphin habitat.

With only 1000 dolphins remaining, this is unacceptable.

If your donation is made before June 30 it will be matched, dollar for dollar by The Thomas Foundation. That will double your impact to save our Reef and the threatened animals that call it home, like our snubfin dolphin..
