Save Our Marine Life
Save Our Marine Life


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.
