It’s World Oceans Day!

Oceans Day was first declared on the 8th June 1992, and it was designated by the United Nations as “World Oceans Day” in 2008 – a day to raise global awareness of our oceans.

For World Oceans Day, on 6th of June 2024, we are celebrating our life-giving oceans by holding a Giving Day.

Our oceans are critical to life on earth. To protect our planet, we must ensure our oceans are healthy.

Our oceans depend on us, just as much as our future depends on our oceans. Your gift on World Oceans Day, 8 June 2023 will make it possible for AMCS to urgently campaign to safeguard our oceans and protect our marine life!

In Australia and around the globe, our oceans are in deep trouble. Loss of habitat, plastic pollution, overfishing, unsustainable development and the very real and immediate impacts of climate change are devastating marine ecosystems, species, communities and economies across our blue planet.

Our oceans face more threats today than at any time in the past.

The health of Australia’s oceans lies in our hands, in our actions and in our decisions.

Celebrate this World Oceans Day with a donation to protect our magnificent marine life.
