Action for Dolphins (AFD) is a not-for-profit organisation working to gain protection for dolphins and other marine animals.
Our primary campaign is to bring an end to unregulated and inhumane dolphin hunting, with a focus on the annual Taiji dolphin hunts. We also work to end activities that harm Australian marine life, including campaigning to remove lethal shark nets, stop illegal hand-feeding, and phase out dolphin captivity.
We achieve our goals by bringing strategic legal actions and powerful advocacy campaigns, as well as lobbying decision makers, raising awareness through targeted advertising, and occasionally putting on events.
AFD is a small team focused on strategy and results – we aim to achieve the maximum benefit for marine life and the environment.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who is passionate about animal welfare who is looking to work in a collaborative environment and learn a range of different skills.

Our office is based in Melbourne but due to the current climate we are working remotely. If the successful candidate is from Melbourne they have the opportunity to come into the office in the future, but we are open to candidates from all over Australia.

We are looking for someone who would enjoy working in a small and dedicated team with a genuine passion for animal welfare and protecting the marine environment.
