We run a number of successful projects such as our flagship community science project 'Reef Watch'
We also actively campaign to protect the marine environment from unsustainable or damaging practices. Our campaign work has three broad categories: Marine Parks, threatened species, and fisheries
A comprehensive, adequate and representative Marine Parks network with a core of highly protected no-take sanctuary zones are a critical investment in South Australia's future. Setting aside some areas now will give our state the best chance to not only protect current marine resources accessed by humans such as fisheries, but will also be a potent force to help protect our magnificent marine environment against future threats such as climate change. Our unique biodiversity is an enormous asset to the state, and sanctuary zones teeming with life will also give SA's eco-tourism industry confidence for the future..
Many of these species are poorly understood and of conservation concern. Conservation Council SA is actively campaigning to protect a number of special marine creatures.
