Protect Perth’s coastal playground

The Western Australian Government has just announced plans to expand Marmion Marine Park – WA’s oldest marine park!

This is an incredible opportunity to protect Perth’s iconic marine life and treasured coastal lifestyle for years to come.

Healthy oceans are essential to our West Aussie identity, lifestyle and local livelihoods.

Whether it’s exploring Mettams Pool, catching waves at Trigg Point or casting a line near Burns Beach, millions of people interact with Marmion every year.

This well-loved park also supports a number of iconic and unique species including endangered Australian sea lions, elusive seadragons, the vulnerable fairy tern and a vast array of colourful fish.

As our oceans continue to face increasing pressures, it is our great privilege and great responsibility to manage Perth’s coastal playground with the future in mind.

Dear Environment Minister Whitby (CC: Stuart Aubrey MLA, Paul Lilburne MLA, Caitlin Collins MLA, Emily Hamilton MLA, Mark Folkard MLA & John Quigley MLA)

I strongly support the Western Australian Government’s commitment to expand Perth’s Marmion Marine Park as part of the groundbreaking Plan for Our Parks initiative. The opportunity to increase the protection offered by this iconic park will bring social, economic and conservation benefits for our WA marine life and coastal lifestyle for years to come.

Marmion Marine Park is an important asset for Western Australia, attracting 2 million visitors a year. For more than 30 years, locals and visitors have enjoyed swimming, fishing, diving, snorkelling and boating in Perth’s local coastal playground. 

This well-loved park also supports a number of iconic and unique species including endangered Australian sea lions, elusive seadragons, the vulnerable fairy tern and a vast array of colourful fish.

I encourage the McGowan Government to continue to work collaboratively with local communities and the tourism, diving, fishing and science sectors throughout the process to protect Marmion’s outstanding conservation values and iconic tourism assets. 

This expansion provides the opportunity to secure important cultural, natural and recreational values and bring socio-economic benefits to local Perth communities. 

Yours sincerely
