Historic Opportunity to Protect the Coral Sea

Posted by: on February 15th, 2012

Friends of RealSurf,

The good folks at Protect Our Coral Sea have contacted us about a petition they are running which is aimed at getting the Federal Government to include important reefs in the proposed management plan. It’s very easy to make yourself heard on this one!

The Coral Sea is a tropical marine jewel which lies east of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. It’s one of the last places on Earth where large marine animals can still be found in great numbers.
The government’s draft plan for this iconic area leaves the majority of species-rich coral reefs, important breeding sites open to fishing.
Right now the federal government is considering the fate of Australia’s Coral Sea.

If the petition widget isn’t showing below on your web browser, please just click here to visit Protect Our Coral Sea where you’ll find it on the front page.
