Abbott announces no further Marine Sanctuaries


The state of marine life:

  • Two-thirds of the world’s coral reefs are dead or dying;
  • 90% of the world’s large fish have been fished-out;
  • Less than 5% of Australian marine life is protected; and
  • 20% of WA’s seas have been signed over to oil and gas drilling.

If Tony Abbott gets his way, Australia will risk joining the global collapse of our oceans, and the collapse of jobs and industries that rely on sustainable fish stocks and healthy oceans.

Call Tony Abbott on (03) 8616 5100 and declare your support for marine sanctuaries – let him know Australian’s want:

  • Protection for our unique marine life;
  • Protection for regional communities and jobs that rely on healthy marine life;
  • Protection for migratory whales who need marine sanctuaries to thrive; and
  • Protection from oil spills.

Your environment, your future, your vote!
Thanks for your support,

Renae Williams
Kimberley Community Campaigner, the Wilderness Society
