Turning the Tide Newsletter – Spring 2023
Inaugural NT Conference
To further protect our amazing biodiversity rich northern coastlines, AMCS is a major sponsor of the inaugural 2023 Northern Territory State of the Environment Conference.
The conference provides an opportunity to come together, build community, and collectively reimagine a just future as we confront the biodiversity and climate crises. This event is critically important for raising awareness of the need for marine protection across the Top End. The conference also celebrates the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Environment Centre NT. AMCS works alongside the Centre to campaign for the protection of some of the last remaining intact tropical coastlines anywhere on Earth.
Thanks to your support, AMCS continues to Keep Top End Coasts Healthy in an alliance with the Environment Centre of the Northern Territory.
Our Northern Territory coastline includes some of the last healthy tropical waters in the world.
Top End coasts are wild, diverse and unique – home to six of the world’s seven sea turtles, migrating whales, rare snubfin dolphins, vulnerable dugongs and iconic sawfish. Top End coasts are under threat from climate change, industrial development, unsustainable fishing practices, and marine plastic pollution.
Keep Top End Coasts Healthy is a community program run by an alliance of environment groups including AMCS. Visit www.topendcoasts.org.au.
