Shellfish reefs have the unenviable position of being Australia’s most critically endangered marine ecosystem. These reefs, made from billions of oysters and mussels, once thrived in Australia’s bays and estuaries from Noosa in Queensland right around Australia’s southern coastline to Perth in Western Australia. Now less than 10% remain.
The Nature Conservancy has been protecting the environment for nearly 70 years. From our historic work in land acquisition to cutting-edge research that influences global policy — we're constantly adapting to take on our planet’s biggest, most important challenges.
Our vision is to create a world where people and nature can thrive. With your support, we can put the best conservation science into action right now.
