The government’s response to my question in Parliament about the long-awaited Sydney Marine Park was disappointing. While the minister provided positive words on the importance of the harbour, there was no commitment to any new protections. Marine protections have stalled significantly under this government and we need urgent action to expand our marine park estate. Sydney Harbour is an internationally recognised icon and has more fish species than the Mediterranean Sea, New Zealand and the United Kingdom: it is a good place to get the state back on track with international obligations to protect our waters. My question is HERE.
