The Australian Oceans Institute (AOI) is a not-for-profit environmental think tank, focusing on oceans, including coasts and catchment areas. AOI researches best practice oceans governance and seeks to educate the public and policy-makers about sustainable oceans management. From our research we produce reference guides and policy papers and run seminars, conferences and workshops to educate and seek avenues to new solutions.

AOI pursues a collaborative approach, working with industry, governing agencies, the scientific community and other stakeholders to achieve effective solutions. Our aim is to work with existing marine NGOs, complementing their activities and strengthening the outcomes.

Our organisation is linked with the Environmental Defence Society (EDS), New Zealand’s leading environmental think-tank, established over 40 years ago. By working with EDS, AOI will also seek to leverage learnings across the Tasman, providing exchange of information on best practice outcomes. (sourced from webbsite 05/04/2021)
