Save Our Sanctuaries – Preserving Marine Biodiversity

In a disheartening turn of events, the Australian Government has decided to suspend the national network of marine sanctuaries, jeopardizing the protection of our precious marine ecosystems. This decision comes after over a decade of planning and receiving an overwhelming 750,000 submissions of support from concerned citizens and environmental organizations.

The network of marine sanctuaries, carefully established through years of scientific research, is vital for safeguarding marine biodiversity and promoting the health of our oceans. These sanctuaries provide vital habitats for a diverse array of marine species and play a crucial role in maintaining the delicate balance of marine ecosystems.

Prime Minister Turnbull’s decision to suspend the sanctuaries undermines the significant progress made by his predecessor, John Howard, in establishing these protected areas. It poses a serious threat to the unique marine life that depends on these sanctuaries for survival.

We urge all concerned citizens and conservationists to join us in rallying for the reinstatement of the national network of marine sanctuaries. These sanctuaries are essential in ensuring the long-term health and resilience of our marine environments, especially in the face of mounting threats such as climate change, overfishing, and pollution.

By suspending the sanctuaries, we risk irreparable damage to marine habitats and the delicate ecosystems they support. The decision to halt the protection of these areas not only undermines decades of scientific research and community support but also jeopardizes the well-being of our marine life for generations to come.

Sea Life Trust Australia calls on all citizens to voice their support for the reinstatement of the marine sanctuaries. We implore Prime Minister Turnbull to reconsider this decision and fulfill the commitment to protect and preserve our marine ecosystems for current and future generations.

Join us in raising your voice to safeguard our marine sanctuaries and the incredible marine life that call them home. Let us unite in advocating for responsible environmental policies that prioritize the protection of our oceans and the diverse species that rely on them.

Together, we can send a powerful message to the Australian Government that our marine sanctuaries are not negotiable. The time to act is now – let us ensure the preservation of these vital sanctuaries for the well-being of our marine life and the health of our oceans.
