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.
