UPDATE – APRIL 2020 – We are so pleased that Sea Shepherd has finally been granted DGR Item 1 Status – we now support them via Two Monkeys Foundation (see our Charities 2020 page)
Sea Shepherd Australia is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. Sea Shepherd Australia uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced oceanic ecosystems, Sea Shepherd Australia works to ensure their survival for future generations.
…” we are personally supporting Sea Shepherd’s work through the Direct Action Crew. We are looking forward to increasing our support via the Two Monkeys Foundation when Sea Shepherd are granted full DGR item 1 status in Australia. Their application has been held up at a Federal government level since 2015. We hope that this road-block will eventually be cleared and Sea Shepherd will be elevated to the charitable status that they most certainly deserve.” …Emma
CatFish Creative believe that design is a conduit for positive change for people and the planet. As the designs and experiences we create pass through the hands, minds and hearts of people, we have an opportunity to weave positive messages and behaviours into the broader fabric of culture and to shift consumption and lifestyle aspirations to a more mindful and abundant basis for living that benefits all. Catfish works with the change makers, the organisations and groups who are doing meaningful work on social impact, humanitarian, conservation and positive change projects across Australia and the world.
