THE HON ALAN CARPENTER, Premier of Western Australia
Congratulations on your
Government’s decision to increase protection at Ningaloo Reef.
from 10% to 34% of the area of the Reef in sanctuary zones and committing
$8.5Million to increased management, the Western Australian Government has
heeded the call of the state, national and international community, and the
advice of the world’s leading coral reef scientists.
I believe the majority
of recreational fishers understand that Ningaloo needs reasonable levels of
protection, and will support this move.This plan has provided the Reef with
an insurance policy against the serious threats facing coral reefs worldwide.
The increased sanctuary
zones and funding for management are critical to protecting Ningaloo for future
generations, and I/we commend your Government for these responsible steps.
