Everyone has a role to play to ensure that current and future generations can use and enjoy all that our ocean has to offer. Even small things in our everyday lives can make a difference.


OceanWatch Volunteer

Our marine environment must be treated with care and respect. Our marine life needs healthy aquatic habitats such as rivers, estuaries, saltmarsh, mangroves and seagrass to thrive, breed and shelter.
It is important that we are aware that our actions on land and on water, can affect the health of our waterways and the health of our marine life. From time to time OceanWatch Australia looks for volunteers to help complete projects. If you are interested in volunteering your time please contact our office on (02) 9660 2262 or email: comms@oceanwatch.org.au and together we can preserve our marine environment.
