Championing the protection of sharks and rays

Shark Champions is a collective of everyday Australians who love our wildlife working towards better conservation outcomes for sharks in our oceans.

— Who we are —

HSI and AMCS

Humane Society International and the Australian Marine Conservation Society are two of the most effective organisations working on shark and ray protection in Australia. Our collective achievements include multiple threatened listings for species of sharks, new and increased marine protected areas for shark habitat and the reduction in shark control programs in Australia. Our shark charity team mobilise hundreds of thousands of supporters to get adequate policy change for sharks under Australia’s environment laws and even in the courts when required.

Key Achievements
— Protection & Conservation —

The campaign

HSI and AMCS are joining forces to create a powerful collective of Shark Champions to turn the tide around for sharks in Australia. Sharks are vitally important species for Australia’s ocean ecosystems, but current policies are letting them down in fisheries, at our beaches and throughout our oceans. Shark Champions is a hub for all Australians who love our wildlife to take direct actions and achieve policy changes and conservation outcomes for sharks and rays.

We also acknowledge the work of all the other groups who work on shark conservation in Australia. The five organisations below are Shark Champions in their own right, and have done great work to protect and help sharks, establish a leading shark charity and conserve our oceans.
