Please, while it's fresh in your mind, make the most generous gift you can for our Marine Treasures - They are Too Precious to Lose....
More Than Dolphins
You can't protect dolphins if you don't protect their ecosystem. We take a whole catchment approach and are work to protect all our marine treasures, especially our dolphins, whales and Bays.
You will be supporting a local organisation with over 26 years of proven community service. Working together will achieve more to protect our dolphins and bays.
We Provide Solutions
- Research to understand our dolphins and the threats they face, including a major dolphin health study
- Marine Education in schools and the community, to build stewardship for our bays
- Leadership influencing government policy and laws by our research findings and analysis. We are also developing the next generation of environmental leaders.
Our big challenge is to achieve long-term outcomes in an era of short-term political and funding cycles, we need a very strong foundation.
Your generosity and trust gives us this strong foundation. It enables us to develop and improve programs to deliver outcomes that would otherwise not happen.
Planning for the next five years and beyond highlights that our core supporters form the ‘heart and lungs’ of our organisation.
Building this core is the key to preparing our organisation to face a future of climate extremes and a population predicted to double by 2050.
Every dollar you donate helps us to bring in nearly two dollars more in grants and income earning programs. Most would not be possible without the foundation your support provides. It’s like a 178% return on your contribution, where our environment reaps the benefit.
We work very hard on the effectiveness of our programs. Last year 90% of expenditure supported programs, only 10% was spent on fundraising. Volunteers added an equivalent of $140,000 support (including our board who aren't paid).
