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 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.
Right now the Government is working with the community and stakeholders to develop a Coastal and Marine Management Strategy. Together we can ensure that this strategy delivers a healthy future for our Top End coasts.
Dear my MLA (CC Chief Minister, Environment Minister and Fisheries Minister),
Healthy coasts are central to our treasured Top End way of life and our fishing lifestyle. However, threats are on the rise and we are seeing signs of decline. The Gunner Government promised a Plan to safeguard our Top End Coasts and fishing lifestyle.
It is due by the end of this year so now is the time to act. There are proven solutions on offer, which must be at the heart of this plan for the Top End's coasts. Send your message calling for a strong plan that will deliver to the needs of the Territory.
