WHO THE OCTOFRIENDS SUPPORT
We seek charities and communities that share the same vision to make
our environment a better place to live.
The Australian Marine Conservation Society(AMCS) is the voice for Australia’s oceans.
We are an independent charity, staffed by committed scientists, educators, and passionate advocates. We 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 livelihoods 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 precious ocean wildlife, AMCS has defended Australia’s oceans for over 50 years.
Together with our supporters, we 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.
We still have a lot of work to do but our immense love and pride for our oceans drives us every day to act. We cannot do this without you, please join us to be the voice for Australia’s marine life.

Create a wave of change – say NO to single use plastic by refusing, reducing, reusing and recycling.
Plastic Oceans Australasia’s mission is to change the world’s attitude towards plastic within a generation. POA programs are core to this mission.
Through these programs, people can take up our fun, ambitious and engaging process to make a huge impact on their community and environment. We are addressing the root cause of single use plastic consumption through our comprehensive approach which is to deliver an easy to use pathway for systematic positive behavioural change.
Plastic Oceans Australasia (POA) is unique in our region and our purpose is to provide information, education, conduct research on the natural environment, and to conserve and protect the natural environment by, without limitation:
a) raising awareness of the problems of plastic waste in the environment.
b) identifying and supporting solutions to reduce the level and impact of plastic pollution; and
c) providing educational resources in relation to the conversation, improvement and protection of the environment from plastic waste in particular within businesses and educational institutions.
POA works closely with Plastic Oceans UK (POUK), who founded the Global Foundation in response to the worldwide plastic crisis.
POA launched at Parliament House in Canberra, August 2017. The launch included a screening of the nine-time award-winning documentary A Plastic Ocean. POUK founder and producer of A Plastic Ocean Jo Ruxton, Board members, our partners and key members of parliament attended. Currently there is a huge amount of misinformed data being disseminated on how to dispose of waste. The film, A Plastic Ocean continues to raise awareness of these issues and has enabled depth of delivery to target groups as a positive way forward.
POA’s pillars of focus are scientific research, sustainable business and education.
Their work is focused in Australia with further expansion happening in 2020

Sea Shepherd fights to defend, conserve and protect our ocean.
Sea Shepherd was founded in 1977 by Captain Paul Watson in Vancouver, Canada, with the mission to protect and conserve all marine wildlife. Incorporated in Oregon in 1981 as the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, today the movement has independent entities in over 20 countries working together on direct-action campaigns around the world.
Sea Shepherd’s mission is to protect defenseless marine wildlife and end the destruction of habitat in the world’s oceans. Since 1977, Sea Shepherd has used innovative direct action tactics to defend, conserve and protect the delicately-balanced biodiversity of our seas and enforce international conservation laws.
From the gentle giants of the sea to its smallest creatures, Sea Shepherd’s mission is to protect all marine life species living in our oceans. Their campaigns have defended whales, dolphins, seals, sharks, penguins, turtles, fish, krill and aquatic birds from poaching, unsustainable fishing, habitat destruction, and exploitive captivity.
The ocean environment is an intricately-balanced ecosystem designed to support and sustain marine wildlife. To truly thrive, they need safe sanctuaries to feed, mate and raise their young without pollution, destructive fishing gear, plastics and other marine debris that choke marine wildlife and destroy their habitats. Sea Shepherd opposes the pollution of the fragile ecosystem through off-shore drilling and fisheries, as well as the destruction of coral reefs from trawling, and the loss of coastal nesting sites from commercial development.
