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.
The government has released the draft NT Parks Masterplan 2022-52 for community consultation. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that could either make or break the future of our Top End parks. For the health of our wildlife, rivers and coasts, for the future of our tourism industry, for fishing, camping and boating, it's important we use this moment. Please join us in backing our NT parks and shaping the future of the Top End.
Keep Top End Coasts Healthy welcomes the Northern Territory Government's announcement today to ban seabed mining, saying it’s a win for marine life, fishing and culture.
