Letter text

Dear my Local Member of Parliament,

I am a constituent in your local electorate writing to show my strong support for the Western Australian Government’s commitment to expand Perth’s Marmion Marine Park. The opportunity to increase the protection offered by this iconic Marine Park will bring social, cultural, 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, numerous seabird species, and a vast array of fish species.

The review and expansion of Marmion Marine Park provides the opportunity to secure important cultural, natural and recreational values and bring socio-economic benefits to local Perth communities.

As my local MP, will you support protecting the outstanding conservation, recreation and tourism values of the Marmion Marine Park by ensuring strong sanctuary protection for our marine life, alongside a mix of other zones to recognise cultural values, fishing, diving and other activities?

Yours sincerely

The Western Australian Government has just announced plans to review 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.

Contact your local mp and show your support for WA coastal protection today!
