SUBMISSION: Draft declaration to ban seabed mining in the NT 2021
Posted by Jennie Oceans · June 21, 2021 4:09 PM
Today we submit our own comments on the draft declaration to prohibit subsea mining in the NT, along with 271 Territorians who signed our petition in support of the ban.
We commend the Gunner Government for listening to the evidence, and the people of the Northern Territory.
Today’s announcement for an NT Parks Masterplan has been welcomed by The Keep Top End Coasts Healthy Alliance as it provides an opportunity to turn the Territory into a leader on coasts.
There is much greater potential to grow the Northern Territory’s marine and coastal tourism economy, and parks and reserves can play a key role.

A significant milestone is approaching – on 5 March 2021 the NT Government will decide on whether to extend or lift the Moratorium on seabed mining, or to ban it permanently in the Top End. Seabed mining, if allowed, would devastate the Top End’s unique coasts and seas, culture, livelihoods and fishing lifestyle.
