Our coasts are at the heart of our Top End lifestyle.

They are central to our economic success and our culture; keeping them healthy ensures our Territory lifestyle, fishing and tourism thrives into the future.


For Indigenous people all aspects of life are intimately connected to the health of their coastal lands and seas. The Territory is famous for fishing, boating and camping thanks largely to our healthy rivers and coasts, teeming with fish and wildlife.

But our coasts are under threat and we are seeing signs of decline. It’s time to put the Plan to protect our Top End coasts into action, to help recover our Top End economy and safeguard our fishing, culture and lifestyle.

Protect Top End Coasts from Gillnets

Support the petition to phase out gillnets in the Northern Territory, protecting threatened marine species like turtles, dugongs, and sawfish. Following Queensland's successful model, we urge NT's leaders to act, ensuring the sustainability of our marine ecosystems and the preservation of our Top End lifestyle. Join us in protecting our marine heritage.

There are proven solutions on offer that can be tailored to the Territory. Now is our chance, as a community of proud Territorians, to shape the future for our coasts, lifestyle and economy.
