We all share a love for our ocean up here on the Northern Beaches, so much of our lives are based around it.
Marine parks, their implementation, management and conservation, is an issue that our community cares about immensely. I have heard the many voices that have written to me, sought meetings, and called my office, and I want to reaffirm my commitment to represent your views in Federal Parliament.
I stand firm in my support for the national network of marine parks.
How can you help?
Show your support by signing the petition, which I can present to the Minister for the Environment and Energy, the Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP in Canberra this June. The more signatures we gather, the stronger my case with the Minister.
Sign the petition
I support our national network of marine parks, welcome the inclusion of $56 million in the 2016 Federal Budget to fund their implementation and management, and urge the Government to make them operational, without reducing high level sanctuary protection (including our Coral Sea Sanctuary).
