Marine Protection

The majority of Australians live within 50km of the coast, with swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, fishing and other water activities a key source of enjoyment and identity for people and communities.

Our oceans, marine life and coast are under urgent threat from plastic pollution, the impacts of climate change such as rising temperatures and higher acidity and other human impacts.

The delicate balance of habitat and marine creatures that has developed over thousands of years is struggling to respond in time when assaulted on so many fronts. At this critical time, we need to maintain and expand marine protected areas to give marine life, fish stocks and the environment the best chance of surviving and thriving.
