About Us

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is the voice for Australia's ocean wildlife. We are an independent charity, staffed by a committed group of professional and passionate scientists, educators and advocates who have defended Australia's oceans for over 50 years. Our paid and volunteer staff work every day on behalf of the community to protect our coasts and oceans.

AMCS works on the big issues concerning the sea. Our key focus is to create marine sanctuaries, make our fisheries sustainable and protect and recover our threatened ocean wildlife, such as our dolphins, sharks and whales.

We also work to tackle the biggest threat to our Great Barrier Reef, which is global ocean warming. Through our Fight for our Reef campaign we are working to ensure that Australia takes urgent and rapid action to move from dirty polluting coal to clean renewable energy.

If we can keep our oceans in their healthiest and most natural state, without pressures from overfishing and pollution, they will be better able to cope with global ocean warming. As part of this focus, we work to improve water quality and reduce pollution and marine debris, which entangles, chokes and smothers our marine life and habitats.

If you want to help ensure Australia's coasts and oceans remain healthy and free for tomorrow's generations, join us today.
