The Marine Awareness and Conservation Society is a student run organization within the University of Arizona.  Founded in 2007, MACS members engage in public outreach events, philanthropy, and fundraisers.

Our outreach events are usually held at the University of Arizona's Biosphere 2 and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.  Our outreach events include squid dissections, shark anatomy and intertidal education.  We also have small arts and crafts for children, as well as other hands on experiences.  In addition to our events at Biosphere 2 and ASDM, we visit local elementary, middle and high schools where we engage with students and educate them about marine ecosystems and sustainable fishing practices.  At the university, we participate in the annual Tucson Festival of Books, Spring Fling, Camp Wildcat, U of A Food Day, Wildcat World Fair and Earth Day, held at Reid Park each year.  We have partnered with other conservation organizations such as CEDO Intercultural, Viva Vaquita, Seafood Watch and the Center for Biological Diversity, to provide exceptional, educational outreach events in the Tucson community.
