Our world offers some wonderful insights and the more we discover about our world, the better we understand it. Along with this increase in knowledge, we can also become victims of that very same knowledge when it is used by certain groups to further their own agenda.
This blog is about providing you with a one-stop spot to find out the truth about Australia’s marine world and its conservation. Australia has one of the highest records for marine conservation and yet constant media bombardment by commercial interest groups such as multi-national corporations, lobbyists and NGOs would have us believe otherwise.

The truth is here! I invite you to discover the truth for yourself here today and celebrate Australia’s marine diversity and the people who work, live and play in our seas and oceans.
