CONSERVATION

At the Ocean Film Festival World Tour we are proud to work with local conservation partners to help support the important work they do keep our oceans clean and safe. In 2017 we are proud to work with the following ocean conservation organisations:

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is the voice for Australia’s ocean wildlife. They’re an independent charity, staffed by a committed group of professional and passionate scientists, educators and advocates who have defended Australia’s oceans for 50 years. AMCS works on the big issues concerning the sea. Their key focus is to create large marine national parks (marine sanctuaries), make our fisheries sustainable and protect and recover our threatened ocean wildlife, such as our sharks, seals and whales. Find out more about AMCS at www.marineconservation.org.au

The Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time. Project AWARE supports an unprecedented global movement of divers acting in their own communities to protect oceans and implement lasting change, focusing in on two major ocean issues – Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. $1 from every ticket sold to the Ocean Film Festival Australia screenings in Adelaide, Sydney Orpheum & Riz, Perth, Melbourne and Hobart will be donated to Project AWARE to support their important work.

Sea Shepherd Australia is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. Sea Shepherd Australia uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. $1 from every ticket sold to the Ocean Film Festival Australia screening in Wollongong will be donated to Sea Shepherd Australia.
