Ocean Planet Tasmania

Ocean Planet Tasmania is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation who is committed to a sustainable future for Tasmania’s marine environment and all that relies on it – our unique wildlife, our idyllic Tasmanian lifestyle and a secure fishing industry for generations to come. We are a community of individuals – including scientists, fishers, divers and conservationists – who aim to educate and engage the community in achieving a healthy, vibrant marine environment. We organise public events, hold information stalls, meetings and conduct internships through the state’s conservation council Environment Tasmania, to further our aims.

The oceans are fundamental to all life on earth. Healthy oceans:

  • produce half of the planet’s oxygen
  • provide nourishment such as seafood
  • regulate temperature and control climatic systems such as rainfall
  • protect coasts from erosion
  • provide medical treatments for diseases such as cancer
  • provide the largest store of carbon in the world
