Fish Care -
"We Fish We Care" -
Fishcare is a
community based volunteer program with the motto ‘We Fish, We
Care’. The Victorian Fishcare Volunteer Program is developing
positive relationships between recreational fisheries users and
fisheries managers to achieve sustainable resource use. Fishcare
volunteers provide information, distribute educational material,
offer assistance to recreational fishers, collect recreational
fish catch data and visit schools and angling clubs. We also
assist other natural resource related programs e.g. Coastaction,
and provide displays at shows and community events. Volunteers
have no enforcement role whatsoever.
Fish Australia is a volunteer organisation that is open to anyone who cares
about the well-being of Australia's native freshwater fish and the rivers,
streams and other waterways that they inhabit.
NFA is funded through membership subscriptions and donations from individuals
and other organisations. Whatever your interest in Australian native fish, there
is a place for you in NFA. If you like to "get your hands dirty"
there is ample opportunity, if you would just like to support us by sending in
your fees, you are welcome too

is it as enthralling as in the calm waters of Hervey Bay, Queensland. This small
coastal city has become known as the Whale
Watching Capital of the World, an accolade bestowed by experts and the
many thousands of visitors who are overwhelmed year after year by the acrobatic
displays by the humpback whales that arrive offshore in the winter months, from
early August to the end of October.

over 30 years. It is keen to promote the development of a national approach to
marine and coastal management, involving governments, industry and every sector of the
community. this is needed to ensure that all human activities are ecologically
sustainable and so benefit everyone, whether they use the marine environment for
recreation, education, science or to make a living.

Since its launch in 1997 EuroTurtle has had strong links with Environmental
Education. Within EuroTurtle, there are a number of curriculum-linked activities
which have been designed to increase awareness about the conservation issues
facing Marine Turtles whilst the conservation section of EuroTurtle provides a
rich resource bank for these educational activities.
The activities are interactive, on-line and
cross-curricula and all have been fully tested in an educational environment.
The activities are obviously 'turtle orientated', although many of the issues
raised apply to most other endangered species.
