Illawarra Mercury: Fight to save marine life goes to beaches

Illawarra campaigners have taken the fight to protect the state’s marine sanctuaries to the sand, calling on the government to protect its ocean life.

Banners were unravelled on beaches in Huskisson, North Wollongong and Stanwell Park on Saturday as part of a statewide ‘‘Banners on the Beach’’ event.

Marine campaigner Daisy Barham said the initiative, based on a similar plan in New Zealand, was the community’s last-ditch effort to stand up for its sanctuaries.
