Don’t take the Bait

Don't take the bait Minister Burke

Have you heard that ‘marine sanctuaries will lead to more asylum seekers arriving by boat’ and that ‘36,000 jobs will be lost’ as a result of Australia’s historic new plan to create marine sanctuaries?

You and I know how ridiculous this sounds, but these are the sort of desperate and misleading claims being made by the fishing industry in a new and serious bid to sink Government plans for the world’s largest network of marine sanctuaries.

Faced with this new threat, we need your help to defend the amazing commitment we secured for our marine life.

With a plan as huge as this, the Government is required to seek comments from the public again before the sanctuaries become law.

However, the fishing industry is using deliberately misleading claims to fuel a public email campaign against the plan – and they’re gaining traction.

Tell Environment Minister Tony Burke not to take the bait. Remind him of the overwhelming support for marine protection and counter the ridiculous industry claims by sending a positive comment about the plan, and even how it could go one step further.

We’ve come too far to have this huge win for our marine life over-turned at the 11th hour.

Please take action and let your friends know as well.

Thanks for doing your bit to save our marine life.

All the best,


Tim Nicol
