Summary

Join Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) in the fight to protect sharks, sea turtles, whales and the abundant coral reefs in an Australian tropical paradise. We are mobilising supporters to ensure the Coral Sea's stunning marine life is protected forever.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In early 2012 the Australian Government will decide the fate of the Coral Sea. But their current plans don't make sense. They're considering exposing most of its coral reefs, underwater volcanoes and critical spawning sites to the pressures from the industrial world. As one of the healthiest areas on our blue planet AMCS has only a few months to persuade the Government to protect our tropical marine life and leave a lasting legacy for future generations. We must give our ocean wildlife a voice.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Australian Government is wavering. Your assistance will help us build on the support of over 600,000 people who have already shown their dedication to this historic campaign, allowing us to stay on the ground during this vital final chapter.

Potential Long Term Impact

The establishment of the world's largest safe haven for marine life in the Coral Sea will set a gold standard for marine conservation and leave a lasting legacy of healthy oceans for future generations.
