The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation staffed by a committed group of scientists, educators, and advocates who have defended Australia's oceans for 40 years. They, along with patron Tim Winton, work on the big issues concerning the sea - creating sustainable fisheries, recovering threatened species and creating marine national parks.
There are some good synergies with projects in our area concerning dugong and sea turtles. Currently, we are rolling out initiatives across our various touch points in our business - retail, front office, marine and touring.
Check out an interview with Kingfisher Bay Resort's Managing Drector, Gary Smith in AMCS' Turning Tide magazine.

As the legislation with the recent Super Trawler showed, 'people power' can make a difference.
