Australian water polo flies flag for our Sharks, Stingers & marine life

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) is pleased to announce a partnership with Water Polo Australia to shine a light on our marine life, the health of our oceans and the need to address climate change.

The national men’s and women’s water polo teams, the Sharks and the Stingers, will provide a valuable platform to increase the knowledge of these amazing creatures as well as other marine life and the threats they face.

AMCS chief executive Darren Kindleysides said: “The partnership between Water Polo Australia and the Australian Marine Conservation Society signifies a shared commitment to the preservation of our oceans and precious marine life. We are excited about working together to raise awareness, promote sustainable practices and empower communities to become stewards of our marine environments, while simultaneously cheering on Australia’s wonderful water polo representatives.

“It’s a wonderful chance for AMCS and WPA to dive into new opportunities, where athleticism meets advocacy and our collective efforts make waves for a healthier planet.”

Water Polo Australia CEO Tim Welsford said: “Water Polo Australia is absolutely thrilled to be working with the Australian Marine Conservation Society.

“Water Polo Australia recognises that our sport is not exempt from the impacts of climate change and that our sport’s impact on the climate is not insignificant.

“We have a responsibility to ensure our sport operates within and protects the environment we play in, and we are excited to begin a collaborative partnership that promotes the long-term wellbeing of our waterways and the marine wildlife that inhabit them.”
