The Ocean Project

Momentum is building for businesses to step up and scale up actions and commitments to contribute to the Global Goal for Nature:

Zero net loss of nature from 2020, net positive by 2030, and full recovery by 2050. Our network of like-minded partners and supporters work closely with us to help achieve shared impact and restore biodiversity and ecosystems to protect the wellbeing of people and the planet.

The Ocean has a special place in the heart of Australians.

It’s where we go to spend time with family, to swim, surf and find solace.

What lies beneath the

The ocean is vast, beautiful, and diverse, holding deep, cold ravines, lush kelp forests and vibrant coral reefs. It offers us food and livelihoods.

We are all deeply connected to our ocean.

But our water ecosystems are affected by waste, marine debris (much of which is plastic) and nutrient pollution.

Let’s face the facts…

Taking control of the pollution reaching our rivers and ocean begins with our choices and actions

Wetland Photo Contest

Often when we think of wetlands, we think of muddy, mosquito-ridden swamps, but they are so much more than that!

We’re calling on all members of the community, the youth, the amateurs and experienced photographers, and everyone in between, to celebrate their local wetlands by capturing their beauty and inhabitants and sending through their best photographs.

We want our wetlands to be seen in a different light, so let’s give them the attention they deserve.
