About the Society

The prime objective of The Malacological Society of Australasia (MSA) is to promote the study of molluscs. Our members include amateurs, students and scientists interested in the study, conservation or appreciation of molluscs. If you are interested in becoming a member, please refer to our membership page.

The MSA is working towards becoming the umbrella group in Australasia (Australia, New Zealand and nearby countries in Asia and the Pacific) representing malacological interests. It is concerned with, and responds to, national and regional issues concerning conservation and funding for molluscan research, import/export controls etc. It has an international membership and is affiliated with other malacological groups including the American Malacological Society and the international organisation, Unitas Malacologica.
