Thanks to all the great Darwin folks who came and took part in our sell-out screening of The Sea & Me! Special THANKS to Darwin Museum, ECNT, our hosts Sea Darwin, Venture North, and Save our Marine Life and all our volunteers. It's great to see a community come together to support our precious ocean! A great night was had by all!
Thanks to all the people who managed to make a submission to the Commonwealth marine reserves review! If you haven't already done so, please take the time to make a submission today. Submissions are due 31st March.
Despite years of science and overwhelming community support, the Australian Government has suspended the North Marine Reserve Network and announced a review leaving all our Commonwealth marine sanctuaries at risk of being cut back or erased completely.
We can't let this occur. Please send a quick submission to help save our precious northern sanctuaries here by 31st March 2015 at Save Our Marine Sanctuaries.
Main points to make in support of marine life:
1. Retain the existing zoning in all Commonwealth Marine Reserves - at a bare minimum.
2. Improve and expand the marine national park zones (marine sanctuaries).
3. Implement the marine reserves immediately, with marine national park zones retained and improved.
All the information you need to make a submission is here on our website. Alternatively, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
