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 the Coral Sea – the cradle to the Great Barrier Reef.
But these plans are not set in stone. They’re asking for your feedback.
Add your name today to stop this madness and save our sanctuaries. Please also consider adding in your address or postcode so we can send a copy of your letter to your local MP.
