Help Provide The World's Best Protection for NSW!

(Actions are at the end of this email!)

The biggest NSW marine sanctuary plan ever was launched on 4th December 2008 by NPA. If implemented this will help gain the world's best protection for NSW oceans.

More marine protection

The aim of this campaign is to gain marine sanctuary status for 20% of NSW oceans reaching from Tweed Heads in the north to Cape Howe in the south.

These sanctuaries will give our NSW oceans protection for the future. These fully protected areas will help to boost the numbers, size and productivity of our fish, help protect our critically endangered species and provide valuable tourism and economic benefits.

If implemented they will help ensure we can all continue to enjoy our oceans for generations to come.

Successes to date!

In the last week NPA has received extensive TV, radio, print and online media. We have had a number of MPs, groups and supporters show their support. Our first council came on board on Monday and we’ll be working hard in the coming weeks to ensure we continue to work towards a commitment from the NSW Government to building the proposed network of protection for our oceans.

You can help provide sanctuary to our marine life - Blue is the New Green!
