I sign a lot of petitions. But I'd like to help stop all of these destructive activities from even being proposed in the first place. To do this, I think that we need a more sustainable economy along the lines envisaged by CASSE at . I encourage everyone to consider signing the position statement at that site, as well as the petition here. And tell your friends!

Breaking News!

Message from Australian Marine Conservati​on Society

Breaking news! The Australian Government is changing the law to prevent the super trawler from fishing our waters for up to two years. It’s a great day for Australia’s seas and a great day for people power!

So thank you ocean-lovers. You stood up for our fragile marine life and sent emails in their thousands urging government to reject this unwelcome factory trawler fishing out our seas.

The unprecedented alliance of conservationists, recreational fishers and the broader community convinced the Australian government to change the nation’s laws. We fought hard to find a way to stop the super trawler and today’s announcement is a result of our work and your support.

None of this would have been possible without your voice.

The battle against this industrial trawler is not completely won. We’ve won a stay of execution for our local fish stocks and ocean wildlife. AMCS will keep pushing the super trawler back and keep pushing to make all of Australia’s fisheries truly sustainable.
To help keep up the fight, donate here

Thanks for all you do,

Tooni Mahto
Marine campaigner
