Save our Marine Life CCWA

This campaign focused on restoring WA marine sanctuaries after the Abbott Government suspended our national network of sanctuaries.
Save our Marine Life


In 2012 Australia created the world’s largest network of marine sanctuaries, protecting our marine life and way of life. But the Abbott Government has suspended our national network of sanctuaries, despite ten years of science and overwhelming community support (including from the majority of fishers). National icons like the Kimberley, Geographe Bay, Perth Canyon, the Coral Sea, Lord Howe Island and the Great Australian Bight are all at risk.

Australians from all walks of life – divers, fishers, surfers, sailors, business owners and ocean lovers across the country – are coming together to take a stand for our marine life. Are you with us? Find out more at
