On behalf of everyone here at AMCS, and especially from our oceans and incredible marine wildlife, THANK YOU!
Our World Oceans Day 2021 giving event exceeded all of our expectations – you, our inspiring, true-blue supporters, have blown us away with your donations and heartfelt words of encouragement!
More than 2000 of you wonderful, generous people gave to our oceans and your donations were doubled by our incredible matching donors. As a result, we eclipsed our initial target by over 60% to raise over $500,000!
We wish to thank every single one of our fabulous donors, from individual supporters such as Juliet and Amber (aged 7 and 5) who gave their pocket money, to foundations and fundraising teams (a list of our magnificent matchers is below).
There has never been a more critical time to stand up for our big, blue backyard and the wildlife that calls it home. Over the next decade, we must fight harder than ever against pollution and overfishing, to protect remaining habitats and bring about urgent climate action. Each generous gift we received on World Oceans Day will build our campaigns and grow our impact for our oceans, marine wildlife and our communities which love and rely on them.
Your faith in and support for our work is inspirational, and I send my deep thanks to everyone who contributed on World Oceans Day 2021. As ever, we will keep you updated on our critical work so that you can see your donation in action to protect our oceans.
