AUSTRALIAN MARINE CONSERVATION SOCIETY
We are delighted to announce that the Renewable Energy Cup event has chosen to support The Australian Marine Conservation Society as the recipient of the 2021 event.
The AMCS is an independent charity, staffed by committed scientists, educators and passionate advocates. They work to stop the biggest threats to ocean health.
Healthy oceans are critical to life on Earth. They shape global weather patterns, produce more than 50% of our oxygen, provide food security and livelihood for millions, they are home to incredible biodiversity and they bring joy and comfort to many.
But now more than ever our oceans need us. Loss of habitat, pollution, industrial scale fishing, development, invasive species and the very real impacts of climate change are devastating marine habitats, species and communities across our blue planet.
As Australia's only national charity dedicated solely to protecting our ocean's wildlife, ACMS has defended Australia's oceans for over 50 years.
Together with their supporters, they have:
Protected critical ocean ecosystems with marine reserves around the nation, including Ningaloo and the Great Barrier Reef;
Led the movement to ban whaling;
Protected threatened and endangered species like the Australian Sea Lion;
Driven the bans on single use plastics around the country;
Provided the tools to help people make informed seafood choices.

They still have a lot of work to do but their immense love and pride for our oceans drives them every day
We cannot do this without you, please join us to be the voice for Australia’s marine life.
