Save our Marine Life



Save our Marine Life

Website Frontpage


In 2012, Australia made history by creating the world’s largest network of marine sanctuaries – protecting our incredible marine life, safeguarding our enviable coastal lifestyle, and giving fish populations across Australia the chance to rebuild and thrive.

More than 150,000 of us helped to create this legacy for our children and the future health of our oceans.

But now, despite 10 years of science and overwhelming community support, these common sense sanctuaries are all at-risk.

Every day, support for our sanctuaries continues to grow. Divers, fishers, surfers, sailors, families, businesses, coastal communities and ocean lovers around the country are joining with Save Our Marine Life and the Big Blue Army to ensure our shared ocean heritage is properly cared for.

Save Our Marine Life is a growing community of people & organisations working to Save our Sanctuaries. Act Now!

Hundreds of thousands of Australians are standing together to protect our incredible marine life from industrial fishing, mining and climate change.
We are divers, recreational fishers, surfers, families, businesses, coastal communities and Australians right around the country.

Together, we’ve created the world’s largest network of marine sanctuaries, and we’ve booted the Supertrawler out of Australian waters.

But, as the threats to our oceans increase, our marine life needs a voice more than ever before.
