Friends of Batemans Marine Park

Are you a friend of the Batemans Marine Park? Sign up now! 

The NSW Liberal/National Government is about to undertake a review - a defacto rezoning - of the Batemans Marine Park. It's clear some in Government want to wind back the important marine sanctuary protections that are the backbone of the park, sustain its remarkable biodiversity and support healthy fish populations. 

Batemans Marine Park needs friends to stick up for it and ensure it's protected for the future. 

The rezoning is expected to start in the 2nd half of 2018. It's important that as many people as possible have their say about the future of the park. 

Add your name below as a Friend of the Batemans Marine Park and I'll keep you updated on the Government's consultation plans and what you can do to ensure a positive future for the marine park and the estuaries, beaches and ocean along the magnificent South Coast.

We want to make sure any future plans for Batemans Marine Park:

  • brings together all user groups including commercial and recreational fishers, local indigenous communities, divers, boaters, surfers and local government representatives to ensure any new plans reflect local needs and the needs of the marine environment.
  • doesn't go backwards in terms of fully protected marine sanctuary zones and ensures these zones are best placed to build local marine biodiversity and the resilience of the marine park
  • ensures there is adequate future enforcement of the rules to maintain the integrity of the park for all users. 

Thank you for being a friend of the Batemans Marine Park. I'll be in touch shortly.

    Doug Dolsen used to say “A day spent fishing is not deducted from lifespan” and I tend to agree.
