We just received the amazing news that the Federal Environment Department received a massive 487,435 submissions on the Coral Sea, during its recent 3-month public comment period. And 99.9% called for a higher level of protection than the government’s draft plan!
We believe this response is more than any other environment issue in Australian history!
A huge thank you to everyone who sent in a submission in support of the world’s largest marine national park in our Coral Sea.
Now we need your support again!
A decision on the Coral Sea is just around the corner.
Now more than ever, we need to keep up the pressure! Environment Minister, Tony Burke will be making a decision any day now and presenting his plan for this iconic area to Cabinet in the next few weeks!
We have proved that our combined actions have given him a huge mandate for more protection for the Coral Sea – let us all make sure he and his colleagues remember that!
Please take a minute out of your day to send a new letter to your federal MP, and Environment Minister Tony Burke urging them to protect this natural wonder.
