A big new marine park for the East Antarctic

Thirty years ago, Australia and France led the world to ban mining in the Antarctic – a monumental achievement that should make every Australian immensely proud.

Now Antarctica and its incredible marine life desperately need our leadership again.

Thanks to thousands of Save Our Marine Life supporters, last year Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley launched Australia’s push to create a big new marine park in the East Antarctic Marine Park.

Right now, the Antarctic Treaty nations of the world are deciding whether or not they’ll support this desperately-needed marine park.

We need to make sure it gets over the line!

Australia has a proud legacy in Antarctica’s history: from its role in the ground-breaking 1959 Antarctic Treaty, to the mighty diplomatic feat by Australia and France that led to the ban on mining in the Antarctic 30 years ago.rnrnThis year Australia has an incredible opportunity to demonstrate its global leadership and help determine the future of the Antarctic once again.rnrnI fully support the Australian Government’s proposal to create a crucial marine park for the East Antarctic and its marine life, and I recognise your leadership for the proposal last year.rnrnRight now, the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources nations are deciding whether they will support Australia’s proposal at this years Commission meeting. I urge you to do all that you can to ensure the East Antarctic Marine Park proposal remains on the Agenda for this year’s meeting, and I encourage the Morrison Government to prioritise its efforts to see the East Antarctic Marine Park approved by the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources this year.rnrnWe, as Australians, have the great honour and responsibility of looking after the largest ‘slice’ of Antarctica: The East Antarctic – a haven for Adelie penguins and one of the most untouched, important places on Earth.rnrnThe East Antarctic Marine Park is urgently needed to protect our vulnerable marine life from industrial fishing and to keep this incredible ecosystem fighting fit in the face of climate change.rnrnAustralia changed the fate of the Antarctic once before – from potential mega mine to a ‘natural reserve, devoted to peace and science.’ Now, with your leadership, we must get this crucial proactive protection in place.rnrnYours sincerely,

Right now, the Antarctic Treaty¬†nations of the world are deciding whether or not they’ll support this desperately-needed marine park.

We need to make sure it gets over the line.
