Petitioning the Australian Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke

Make your voice heard: support Australia in creating the world’s largest network of marine parks.


Australia is set to take an historic step for marine protection by establishing the largest network of marine reserves in the world.

It could be a stunning achievement that would protect many of Australia's most important offshore underwater features and places where marine wildlife feeds and breeds.

But your help is needed to make this a reality.

We are very close to securing these crucial marine habitats. The Federal Environment Minister, Tony Burke, has already outlined the system of proposed marine parks, but Australian law requires that the government seek comment from the community before finalising the boundaries of these marine parks.

With your help we can ensure the passage of these historic marine parks, and also make a final push for the government to safeguard some of Australia's most critical marine environments that have been not been adequately protected, like key areas around the breathtaking Rowley Shoals, Ningaloo Reef and south coast of WA, and in the Coral Sea and Top End.

Send your message of support for our marine wildlife to our government!

Every message counts towards making this historic proposal a reality.
