The Australian Marine Conservation Society is Australia's only national charity dedicated exclusively to protecting ocean wildlife and their homes.

Help us fight for the Reef

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.
