Australia's marine parks are under threat
Australia faces a critical decision on marine protection that warrants the world's attention.
The government's current proposal to drastically cut planned protections for Australia's 44 marine parks could be the largest downgrading of a protected area system in history.
For decades, Australia has been a leader in ocean conservation. Its early adoption of large-scale marine protected areas set an example for the world. The Great Barrier Reef is treasured globally and contributes directly to Australia's massive tourism and recreation industry.
We cannot take these steps backward — humanity can't afford it.
Take action now if you stand with our oceans.
