As a local constituent I am writing to encourage you to attend a special event at Parliament House this November.
The Northern Territory has some of the most intact tropical waters on the planet, home to a range of vulnerable and endangered marine life, important to our economy, and the heart of Territory way of life. But our coasts are increasingly facing a range of threats to their future.
This became an important issue during the recent Territory election, with commitments made to develop a Plan of Action to protect our marine environment and treasured coastal way of life.
Finalist at the Capricornia Film Awards - Saltwater Secrets - explores this very issue, our incredible Top End coasts, the threats they are currently facing, and the fishers, tourism businesses and local communities coming together to protect them.
Watch the trailer here: http://www.topendcoasts.org.au/saltwater_secrets
Saltwater Secrets really is a must see film and will be showcased at the Parliamentary Premiere this November at a sunset screening with guest speakers.
When: Wednesday 23 November, 6:30pm
Where: the Nitmiluk Lounge and the main dining room, Level 4, Parliament House
As a local constituent, I encourage you to attend this special event at Parliament House, where you and other Members of the Legislative Assembly will meet the Keep Top End Coasts Healthy team and stars of Saltwater Secrets.
