Speak out for Australia’s Marine Sanctuaries!
May 16, 2014
Ocean Elder and IUCN WCPA Emeritus, Graeme Kelleher has just taken action to protect Australia’s incredible marine life and coastal lifestyle, and thought you might like to help too.
In 2012, Australia created the world’s largest network of marine sanctuaries, but Tony Abbott has now suspended these sanctuaries, putting them all at risk. He says there’s been no consultation, no science evidence.
But there’s already been 10 years of science assessment, 606 days of consultation, 221 leading scientists backed sanctuaries, and 750,000 submissions with 95% support!
Watch this video and pledge your support for Australia’s sanctuaries today:http://www.saveourmarinelife.
We’re 100,000 strong in Australia and still growing. Local businesses, divers, fishers and coastal communities are getting on board.
Please watch the video and sign the pledge today. Together, we’ll show Mr. Abbott just how important sanctuaries are. http://www.saveourmarinelife.
