ABC Darwin reports that Top End coasts are worth almost $3 billion a year, but that revenue is in danger without a plan to protect our coasts.
Jason Fowler, the NT Campaign Coordinator for KTECH, explains that Territory coasts are at a crossroads and are under threat as a result of climate change, pollution, and industrial development.
Scientists are pushing the Northern Territory Government to release there promised Coastal Marine Management Strategy to manage threats to our coasts.
Now is our chance, as a community of proud Territorians, to shape the future we want for our coasts, lifestyle and livelihoods. Ask the Gunner Government to deliver a Coastal and Marine Management Strategy, as promised at the last election. This strategy can provide enduring protection for our coasts. Sign our petition, and help keep our Top End coasts healthy!
