A group for Darwin residents concerned about the risks associated with unconventional gas mining in the NT.


A group for Darwin residents concerned about the risks associated with unconventional gas mining in the NT. Our governments have a plan to pour $3.5 billion of taxpayer money into a massive industrial hub, so that Big Business can build polluting factories smack bang in the middle of Darwin Harbour. It will put everything we love about this place at risk. Tell the Chief Minister you won’t sacrifice our health, harbour and climate for gas company profits. For Darwin’s sake, stop the Middle Arm Gas Hub. sign the petition today:

Hey Territorians!! Dive into the incredible world of our coastal guardians – mangroves! These environmental powerhouses do more than just grace our landscapes; they’re pivotal for the health of our planet . Not only are mangroves champions in carbon sequestration, battling climate change ️, but they also play a vital role in preserving biodiversity. Our mangrove forests are teeming with life, serving as the bustling nurseries of the sea . They provide shelter and breeding grounds for a diverse array of marine life, including fish, birds, and crustaceans, including some of our local faves – barramundi, mudcrab and prawns. This isn’t just about ecological balance – it’s about our fishing culture too! The abundant and healthy fish populations we enjoy in the NT owe much to these mangrove nurseries. They’re the unsung heroes behind our great fishing experiences!

Besides nurturing marine life, mangroves are essential in protecting our coastlines from erosion . Their complex root systems not only stabilize the soil but also form natural barriers against the fury of storms and cyclones, as we’re witnessing right now . Plus, these unique trees are natural purifiers, filtering pollutants and ensuring the water quality necessary for vibrant coral reefs and seagrass beds . But, these vital ecosystems face threats from clearing, industrial development and climate change . We need to champion the cause of mangrove preservation. Every mangrove protected is a step towards a healthier planet and sustains our renowned NT fishing lifestyle . Let’s keep these vital ecosystems thriving for the health of our planet, our coasts, and our love of fishing! ️ #MangroveProtection #CoastalConservation #TopEnd #MarinePark #NTFishing
