What We're Doing
The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS)
In 1965, Eddie Hegerl and a group of marine scientists and ocean conservationists from the University of Queensland and the CSIRO founded the AMCS — a national conservation group dedicated solely to protecting Australia's oceans and marine wildlife. Their mission is to create a better, cleaner future for our planet and our oceans.
For over 50 years, the AMCS has defended Australia's precious coastline, providing critical support and funding for conservation efforts to keep our oceans healthy. Since their inception, the AMCS has protected critical ocean ecosystems with marine reserves around the nation, including the Great Barrier Reef. They have led the anti-whaling movement, stopped supertrawlers and protected threatened and endangered species such as the Australian Sea Lion from toxic plastic pollution.
