About AMCS

The Australian Marine Conservation Society is the voice for Australia's oceans.
AMCS are Australia’s only national charity dedicated solely to protecting our precious ocean wildlife – a community of ocean lovers across the nation working for healthy seas.

They work on the big issues that risk our ocean wildlife. They have protected critical ocean ecosystems with marine reserves around the nation, including Ningaloo Reef and the Great Barrier Reef. They have led the movement to ban whaling, stopped supertrawlers, and protected threatened and endangered species like the Australian Sea Lion.

When whales and turtles are washing up dead with their stomachs full of plastic, it’s shockingly clear - we can’t turn a blind eye to this crisis any longer.

According to statistics published by UNESCO, over 1 MILLION seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals die every year - killed by plastic pollution. That means in the 30 seconds it took you to read this, plastic killed another dolphin, turtle or seabird.

That’s more than 3,000 pointless deaths, caused by unnecessary plastic, every single day.

It’s sickening. Turtles and sea lions choking to death on our waste. Whales and seabirds with stomachs full of plastic. Our most threatened marine life has had a gutful - they can’t swallow our plastic pollution any more.
