Australian Coral Reef Society rejects decision to abandon sanctuary zones in proposed Sydney Marine Park

Here, we comment on the New South Wales Government’s decision to abandon sanctuary zones in the proposed Hawkesbury Shelf Marine Bioregion. We briefly note our objections to the NSW Fisheries Minister’s decision to remove no-take zones from the Hawkesbury Shelf Marine Bioregion and we urge the NSW Government to reconsider and return to a process that provides adequate protection for the marine communities of NSW.
