Partnership with the Australian Marine Conservation Society
We are thrilled to have partnered with The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS), Australia’s only national charity dedicated solely to protecting Australia’s ocean wildlife. Formed over fifty years ago by scientists and ocean conservationists, AMCS has led the fight to protect our oceans. They’ve prevented mining on the Great Barrier Reef, helped spearhead a global ban on commercial whaling, secured the Great Barrier Reef as a marine park, saved Ningaloo Reef, created the sustainable fish revolution and much, much more.
They are proof that people can make a difference to protect the future of our planet. Currently, they are hard at work advocating to stop Adani from creating one of the biggest coal mines in the world inland from the Great Barrier Reef. From AMCS: Australians have a deep bond with our oceans. As inhabitants of the largest island on earth, it is our great privilege to grow up surrounded by an amazing diversity of life and colour.
The voice for Australia’s oceans, AMCS works to ensure the future of our beloved waters. At Outer Island, our mission is bring awareness to the magic of Australian native plants, animals and habitats. As avid snorkellers, we are obsessed with the oceans and often overwhelmed at what we can do to help. AMCS makes it easy to help, with mailing campaigns on their website that take less than five minutes to complete. They are the hub for what’s happening in Australia’s oceans.
Beginning this April, we are thrilled to be supporting the ocean superheroes at AMCS by donating 5% of the sales from selected products to their ‘Save the Sharks’ campaign, ‘Fight for our Reef’ campaign and ‘Ocean Plastic Pollution’ campaign.
