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.
Fight for the Reef has today released a new report into the benefits and risks of cruise ships for the Cairns local economy that was originally commissioned to help understand if there was any need for further dredging in Trinity Inlet.
AN independent study into the economic benefits of cruise shipping has revealed the industry would be of little-to-no benefit in Cairns.
Communities across Australia came together on Saturday to celebrate World Heritage Day by writing hundreds of 'messages in a bottle' to Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt to ask him for greater protection of the Great Barrier Reef.
