Our seas and oceans are home to a kaleidoscope of life. Both here in Australia and around the world, HSI campaigns for increased state, national and international protection for threatened and endangered marine species and conservation of the habitats which they depend on for their survival.

Working through international environmental treaties for wildlife and biodiversity protection, through nominations of species and habitats for protection under Australia’s environment laws, ensuring strong domestic policies and by challenging decisions in the courts, HSI continues to create a better world for marine species.
