Despite harsh circumstances, together we have achieved some historic wins.

You – the voice of our oceans – have secured the safety of countless marine animals this year. 

Their future is brighter thanks to you.

We’ve created a video highlighting some of the great wins you made possible in 2019.

Here’s just a few of the wins you made possible.

  • At long last our whales won’t face harpoons this summer! After years of fighting, we finally won the battle against Japan’s lethal whaling program in our Southern Oceans.
  • We passed laws to save the Great Barrier Reef from water pollution! Our new water pollution laws in Queensland will boost coral health, helping our Reef ecosystem to be more resilient in the face of rising sea temperatures.
  • We inspired SA, QLD and the ACT to commit to banning dangerous plastics! The momentum for change is incredible, and it is all thanks to you.We’re going to save our wildlife from choking on plastic.

Every member of the AMCS crew has been blown away by the number of people rising up to save our oceans this year. Whether you sent emails, phoned MPs, donated money, or participated in rallies or events, all of our collective actions have made these wins possible. Thank you.

Your support is going to be crucial in the year ahead.

We are about to enter one of the most critical decades our oceans have ever faced. Australians are feeling the heat of the climate crisis right now. Our turtles, penguins and reef wildlife are on the front line. We must rise to the challenge of protecting them.

Yet despite the challenges we face, I know the future of Australia’s ocean wildlife is brighter thanks to you. 

Stay resolute. Together we truly do have the power to give healthy oceans full of life to our children and grandchildren.

Happy holidays from all of us at AMCS.
