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.
Our coasts are at the heart of our Top End lifestyle. But their health is under threat. Our fishing is not as good as it used to be. Mangroves are being destroyed, our rivers are threatened by dams, and pollution is damaging Darwin Harbour. Fortunately, there are proven solutions on offer. Now is our chance, as a community of proud Territorians, to reshape the future we want for our coasts, fishing lifestyle and economy.
Thanks to Territorians like you, we have achieved great things for our coasts and fishing lifestyle, including the Territory’s first ever plan to safeguard our coasts - the NT Coastal and Marine Management Strategy, and enacting the first Marine Park in the NT in over 30 years at the iconic Limmen Bight - a win win for fishing, culture and conservation.
We need a strong and active community voice to continue to keep Top End coasts healthy. Sign up to stay in the loop!
Right now the Gunner Government is finalising its Coastal and Marine Management Strategy. Together we can ensure that this 10 year plan safeguards the health of our Top End coasts, as promised.
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 any day now, 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.
