Dear Territory leaders (CC my MLA and candidates),
A new shocking report, Health Check of our Top End Coasts by the Environmental Defenders Office Northern Territory (EDONT), reveals how current and historical decision making has resulted in evident and escalating permanent damage to the NT's coasts, such as the destruction of essential mangrove systems, toxic pollution in Darwin Harbour, and declines in popular fish stocks.
Territorians enjoy a lifestyle second to none. The natural environment, its beauty and bounty, are central to the Territory way of life, to its economic success and our shared futures. Research recently commissioned found that Territorians are worried about the threats to their enviable lifestyle.
A detailed plan to safeguard the Top End’s coasts and waterways is urgently needed now.
I call on all political parties to make an election commitment for a plan that will protect our Top End coasts and lifestyle.
