How to Support Us
You can support AUSMEPA in a number of ways either through individual membership, corporate sponsorship or public donations.
AUSMEPA's funding comes primarily from these three sources and the occasional government grant obtained on a competitive basis for a particular environmental project.
As a financial supporter you will be contributing to AUSMEPA's marine environment sustainability education and awareness programs for schools and seafarers, in particular you will be helping in the following:
- Promoting environmentally responsible practices among ships, ports and communities that use the sea;
- Education for the protection of the Australian marine environment by young Australians through AUSMEPA's school marine environment education programs and seafarer education programs
- Increasing community recognition of the role of the maritime and port industries in marine environment management, pollution reduction and sustainable practices.
Membership, corporate sponsorship or a donation to AUSMEPA provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate a commitment towards the protection of the marine environment.
Members, sponsors and donors are kept up to date about AUSMEPA's activities with regular AUSMEPA news bulletins.
We invite you to be actively involved in protecting the Australian marine environment and saving the world's oceans by becoming a member, corporate sponsor or a donor to AUSMEPA!
Corporate sponsors are listed on the AUSMEPA website showing the level of financial support and have a link provided to their own website.
