Keep Top End Coasts Healthy

Paul has always been passionate about conserving the natural environment, and nobody knows better than him what amazing natural treasures we have here in the Top End. From the strikingly picturesque coastlines, to the raw beauty of the desert country – The Northern Territory is blessed with it all.

‘Keep Top End Coasts Healthy’ is an alliance of environment groups including the Australian Marine Conservation Society, the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Environment Centre of the Northern Territory, and aims to protect the Top End way of life and secure the health of the coasts for the future.

An extract from the recent report released by ‘Keep Top End Coasts Healthy’ sums it up perfectly…. Territorians enjoy a lifestyle second to none. Despite the heat and wet, locals get outdoors as often as they can – into the bush to camp and into a tinny to fish. The natural environment, its beauty and the bounty it provides are central to our Territory way of life, to our economic success and to our shared futures. There are, however, a number of threats to our enviable lifestyle. Development has spilled over into tidal areas and vital mangroves have been lost. Darwin Harbour is, sadly, being loved to death. Industry is rapidly expanding and if there’s a big accident, the pollution damage could be devastating and permanent for NT waters.”

In short – our Top End Coastline and Marine Environment is under threat, and Paul has pledged his support to both the Australian Marine Conservation Society, and their alliance of ‘Keep Top End Coasts Healthy’. By recently becoming an ambassador, Paul is on a mission to help raise awareness of the threat to our unique coastlines, and of course offer support wherever possible by means of fundraising.

THE HEALTH OF OUR COASTS ARE TOO VALUABLE TO RISK

SIGN THE PETITION CALLING FOR ACTION TODAY

A timely new report - Valuing Our Top End Coasts and Seas - spells out just how valuable the health of these coasts is to our Territory lifestyle, livelihoods and economy.

But it also found that without proper protection and management, the Top End is at risk. Make sure your local politicians hear your concern: Add your name today telling the Gunner Government that the health of our coasts is too valuable to risk, and we need a Plan that will properly protect our coasts into the future.
