Australian Marine Conservation Society - Sharkwater

As keen scuba divers in our spare time, we at Propeller are passionate about the conservation of our amazing marine environment and are proud to support the Australian Marine Conservation Society where we can with some occasional graphic design work.

The AMCS is currently campaigning to save our precious sharks from becoming shark fin soup as the result of an alarming new proposal by the Queensland Government to establish a dedicated shark fin fishery in the Great Barrier Reef.
