AKA's message to NSW Department of Primary Industries:
Is it posesible that humans can share theplanet with other species, even ones that we fear for no reason other than our own? Do we have to take over EVERY other species' habitat? make some room for others, I beg you.
Daan Spijer's message to NSW Department of Primary Industries:
Recreational fishing is a wonderful pastime, but the fishers need to also acknowledge the need to protect those species that are crucial to the whole ecosystem. Removing large predator species from the food chain adversely effects many other species and may even make recreational fishing a futile activity.
Seakkid's message to NSW Department of Primary Industries:
As a sea kayaker and diver I implore you to take action to protect the Grey Nurse Shark from extinction with immediate action. I have heard on numerous occassions fishermen state that the Grey Nurse could not be in danger of extinction because that they frequently catch them. This indicates their ignorance and lack of concern for the plight of these creatures. They need sanctuaries to protect their future immediately.
tom1's message to NSW Department of Primary Industries:
I personally would be very disappointed if we missed the opportunity to protect our marine life and instead insured the wasteful destruction of something precious.
It's time to take decisive action and protect areas where the precious grey nurse shark aggregates
seti's message to NSW Department of Primary Industries:
Dar Minister of Primary Industries ans Staff,
With less than 300 GNS left on the NSW coast the Government is guaranteeing the loss of this amazing species with anything less than an excellent reserve system, focused on no take sanctuaries. The public voted you in to protect our heritage, natural and human. Do your jobs! Please write to me explaining why you have a moratorium on marine sanctuaries and what you will do to protect our marine wildlife, particularly threatened species like the GNS. Breeding programs ex-situ are pointless without adequate reserve area and a healthy environment for recovering species to thrive. Sanctuaries are necessary; your policy will fail at great expense to the tax payer and our precious wildlife. I whole heartedly support the Wilderness Society and other environmental groups on this issue. I vote based on environmental policy every election for the past 13 years and will continue to, as do my family. Lisette Salkavich 3/24 Marine Drive Fingal Bay 2315
