New PIRSA Minister
Aug 3, 2020 —
Dear cuttlefish supporters,
Due to Minister Tim Whetstone's resignation, the petition is now addressed to the new Minister for Primary Industries, David Basham.
As I mentioned in my previous update, this online petition has had tremendous support and media coverage, and is a fantastic tool to raise awareness of the Cuttlefish plight. It will show Minister Basham the immense community support for protecting these unique cuttlefish!
HOWEVER....to be tabled in parliament, a formal paper petition needs to be physically signed. Please contact Whyalla MP Eddie Hughes office on (08) 8645 7800, to be sent a copy. Alternatively, most dive shops in South Australia have a copy available to sign.
I urge you to support both of these petitions, and continue to share both with your network. Every single signature counts!
Keep fighting for people power!
