Healthy oceans need sharks.
Without them, ecosystems face possible collapse. Despite having lived on Earth for approximately 450 million years, today they are the most threatened group of marine animals in the world.
Did you know that 37% of shark and ray species currently face extinction? AMCS and HSI won’t let that happen and we need your help.
Together, we’re creating a powerful collective of Shark Champions to turn the tide for sharks in Australia. If you love marine life and want to take direct action to help save it, you’re in the right place.
Issues facing sharks and rays.
More than one third of the world’s sharks and rays have been put at serious risk of extinction over the last 100 years due to lethal threats from humans.
Fishing, culling programs, habitat loss and warming oceans are all contributing to harming this keystone species.
Who we are.
The Australian Marine Conservation Society and Humane Society International are two of the leading and most effective organisations working on shark and ray protection in Australia.
By joining forces, we’re achieving more for our oceans and these precious animals.
In just the past five years we’ve achieved so much, here’s some our biggest outcomes.
We’re over 60,000 Shark Champions strong, speaking out for sharks, and we want you to join us!
