Keep our Top End coast healthy. A lifestyle worth protecting.


The Gunner Government's commitment to deliver a Coastal and Marine Management Strategy is a good first step to tackle the threats to our coast and lifestyle. 

Now the community is looking for the Government to deliver a plan it can rely on - one that secures the unique cultural, conservation and fishing values of the Top End's coast. 

There are proven solutions on offer, which must be at the heart of a plan for the Top End's coast and can be tailored to the needs of the Territory - including Sea Country Indigenous Protected Areas, national parks in the sea and recreational fishing areas.

What's Special

The great outdoors is the heart of our Top End lifestyle. Nothing down south comes close to the national parks, incredible coastline and tropical seas we call home.

The Problems

The Territory coast is at the heart of our Top End lifestyle. But its health is under stress. Our fishing is amazing, but not as good as it used to be. Mangroves are being destroyed, pollution is damaging our beaches, and the threat of seabed mining is looming.

SIGN THE PETITION TO KEEP OUR TOP END COASTS HEALTHY

SUCCESS: Because of your efforts the Government has now included the Coastal and Marine Management Strategy in its Economic Development Framework. Thank you to the hundreds of you who made a submission. Let's keep it going - together we can ensure that this strategy delivers for Top End Coasts and remains a priority for the Government.

Dear Territory Leaders (CC my MLA),

The Gunner Government's commitment to develop a Coastal and Marine Management Strategy is a good first step to tackle the threats to our coast and lifestyle. 

Now the community is looking to you to deliver a plan it can rely on - one that secures the unique cultural, conservation and fishing values of the Top End's coast. This would bring significant benefits to the NT's people and economy, particularly in tourism. Iconic places such as Ningaloo and the Great Barrier Reef are thriving as a result of plans like this.

There are proven solutions on offer, which must be at the heart of a plan for the Top End's coast and can be tailored to the needs of the Territory - including Sea Country Indigenous Protected Areas, national parks in the sea and recreational fishing areas. 

Yours sincerely,
