Protect our marine sanctuaries

Protect our marine sanctuaries

The Turnbull Government has released its draft plans for our suspended National Network of Marine Sanctuaries.

Unbelievably, they have completely ignored their own science recommendations, the voice of the Australian public and the pleas of local communities.

Devastating cutbacks are proposed for our best-loved marine treasures right around the country, opening the door to destructive commercial fishing and to oil and gas giants at Lord Howe, Geographe Bay, Perth Canyon, the Great Australian Bight, the Gulf of Carpentaria, the Kimberley, and our Coral Sea – the cradle to the Great Barrier Reef.

A quick note to the Director of National Parks and other officials could help protect our marine sanctuaries. We have prepared a template email for you to send. If you prefer, you can personalize this copy to make it more effective. Please ensure that you are polite at all times.
