Send an SOS to your MP: Save our Sanctuaries
In 2012, we made history.
The Australian Government created the largest offshore network of marine sanctuaries in the world. Finalising Australia’s proud story of ocean protection, a history book both sides of politics had written.
Together we ran a strong campaign to establish sanctuaries for our marine life. We wrote thousands of letters, made thousands of calls, held inspiring events, ran advertising where it mattered and made history.
But now every sanctuary we secured is at risk. The Abbott Government has just announced a review into these protected areas.
This ignores the science, community support, consultation and over a decade of bi-partisan support for marine sanctuaries.
It’s time to send an SOS to your MP.
Please contact your MP and Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt and tell them to listen to science and public opinion and save our sanctuaries.
And please make it personal: add a line to your MP telling them why our oceans are so important to you.
