Its objectives are to research, explore, document and protect Australia's historic shipwreck heritage. Each State or Territory program offers different opportunities for public participation as do maritime archaeological volunteer associations that exist in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia.

  • Michigan Underwater Preserve Council
    The Michigan underwater preserve system was created in 1980 by legislation supported and largely drafted by Michigan sport divers. They took action to preserve Michigan's shipwrecks for later generations. The legislation imposes stiff penalties for disturbing shipwrecks and their artifacts. Since 1980, Michigan's underwater preserve system has grown to occupy more than 2300 square miles of Great Lakes bottomland in twelve distinct underwater preserves. They protect some of the region's most sensitive and historic underwater resources. The Michigan Underwater Preserve Council, Inc. (MUPC) will support the collective mission of Michigan's Underwater Preserves by speaking as their unified voice, offering collective communication, and promoting and advocating on their behalf to help maintain Michigan's rich underwater history. MUPC will also encourage the responsible discovery, preservation, education and visitation of historic resources on Michigan's bottomlands through SCUBA diving, snorkeling and other means.

  • Southwest Michigan Underwater Preserve
    Many people visit Southwest Michigan to enjoy miles of sandy beaches, great restaurants, unique shops and exciting water sports. While many others visit because of Lake Michigan's historic shipwrecks, pier structures and geological formations in and around the boundaries of the Southwest Michigan Underwater Preserve. For hundreds of years the Great Lakes provided a natural transportation system into the interior of the United States as our nation expanded west. The inland waterways of these Great Lakes provided the most dangerous shipping waters in the world. Sudden storms, fog, heavy traffic and steamship companies demanding captains to stay on schedule no matter what the weather, resulted in the destruction of thousands of schooners, steamers and barges. The Great Lakes bottomland is littered with these time capsules from the time when our nation began to emerge into the world power it is today. These shipwrecks, artifacts, and natural features attract skin and scuba divers from across the United States. They come to explore and observe how the cold, fresh water of the Great Lakes preserves history. South Haven, Michigan
