Protect Our Oceans

Minister for the Environment and Energy, Josh Frydenberg, has released new management plans for Australia's forty four marine parks, covering more than 3.3 million square hectares.

The Government’s plan is worse than we ever imagined and would gut Australia's network of marine parks.

This decision removes more area from conservation than any decision from any government in any country ever.

There has never been a step backwards in conservation area as large as this in any other country.  

We must protect our oceans.

Add your name to tell the Liberals to stop their attack on our marine parks.

    The Governments attempt at environmental vandalism must be stopped. Who would this policy benefit, international trawling Companies?

    Save our marine environment, not destroy it!

    I find it astonishing that an Australian government in this day and age can seriously propose such a radical, and radically stupid, change to the hard won protections in these areas. Australia should be world leader in matters of conservation, not behaving like a venal and banal servant of who know what lobbyists and special interest groups. I urge everyone in Frydenberg’s electorate to throw him out at the next election before he does any more damage.

    It’s really beyond me. How can things like this still get enough support? We need more marine park, not less. More protection, not less! Is the evidence right on our door step not enough??
