A call to action for ocean, wetlands and rivers

From January to March 2024, we’ll be empowering volunteers throughout Australia in our commitment to improve the biodiversity, climate resilience and blue carbon storage potential of our ocean, wetlands, and rivers.

Let’s collectively make a splash for positive change — every action counts towards a healthier ocean and a more resilient climate. Join us and be a part of the change that secures the future of our ocean for generations to come.
