The Australian Marine Conservation Society is Australia's only national charity dedicated exclusively to protecting ocean wildlife and their homes.
The coal industry is accelerating their plans to build a mega port at Abbot Point, on the Great Barrier Reef coast. It's a race against time.
We can't let the mining giants get a foothold on our Reef. Mega mines need mega ports and mega ports mean more dredging, more dumping, more pollution, more ships and more problems for our beloved Reef.
Please DONATE what you can now, and help us take on the mining industry.
Together, we will stop one of the world's biggest coal ports at Abbot Point, stop the damaging dredging in the Reef’s waters, stop the super shipping highway from hurting our defenceless turtles, dugongs and whales.
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.
THE Geelong Star will be required to implement additional marine safety measures after it notified the fisheries regulator of six mammal fatalities.
DESPITE outrage from conservation groups about the killing of dolphins and seals by a large factory fishing trawler, the federal government looks set to stand firm and allow them to keep working in Australian waters.
The Stop the Trawler Alliance today called for the factory freezer trawler the Geelong Star and all large factory trawlers to be banned from fishing in Australian waters. This follows reports from the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) that the Geelong Star has killed four dolphins and two fur seals within its first few weeks of fishing in Australian waters.
