On midnight 16th November the network of Commonwealth Marine Reserves became law and began permanently protecting more than 2.3 million square kilometres of ocean environment. This is an important achievement for the long term conservation and sustainable use of Australia’s oceans. The Australian Government also announced  that  it  will be allocating around $100 million in fisheries adjustment assistance to support the creation of the network of marine reserves.

I support the conservation and protection of the Grey Nurse Shark found on the East Coast of Australia. During the early 1960's and through to the late 1970's they were hunted relentlessly through ignorance. The mentality was that we must rid ourselves of this ocean menance that is threatening our beaches. It wasn't until Scuba Divers alerted the government to the fact the Grey Nurse Shark is completly harmless and in 1984 the Grey Nurse Shark became protected as an Endangered species.
