11 Wirangu Interperative signs have been erected along the coastline of the Chain of Bays. The signs were created by Aboriginal artist Suzie Betts. They are very colourful and wonderful to look at!
Go to our FaceBook page to see an example of one of the signs at Smooth Pool. More photos are coming!  Grin

This survey is being undertaken on an annual basis to determine more accurate estimates of Australian Sea Lion population trends.
Nicholas Baudin Island has been selected because it is one of the top 10 most important breeding colonies for the species.
A marine park sanctuary zone has been added to the existing aquatic reserve around Nicholas Baudin Island, in recognition of the environmental importance of this site.

The Friends of Sceale Bay have presented a submission to the South Australian Government as part of the latest round of public consultation on Marine Parks in South Australia.

This round of public consultation follows from the outcomes of a key stakeholder meeting which took place following the disbanding of the Local Area Groups (LAG) in May 2012. The South Australian Government then released a new version of proposed draft boundaries for the Sanctuary Zones of each of the State's 19 new Marine Parks.

Our submission points out some serious deficiencies in the proposed Sanctuary Zones for Marine Park 3 (West Coast Bays), which covers the Chain of Bays. In particular, we have argued for the placement of a Sanctuary Zone at Cape Blanche (which was proposed in the original "Starting Point" scenario put forward by the Department of Environment and continually supported by conservation representatives during the LAG meetings).

Cape Blanche, and the important Australian Sea Lion Colony at Nicholas Baudin Island, are iconic sites for marine conservation in South Australian waters. These critical habitats must be protected within a Sanctuary Zone for there to be any credible conservation outcome, not only for Marine Park 3, but for the entire Marine Park network.

This new project will begin next month and will run until the end of June 2015. "Linking the Chain of Bays" will continue the work established under the current Caring for our Country Project, "Indigenous and Community Partnerships Restoring the Chain of Bays", which will run until June 2013.

Both projects are partnerships between the Friends of Sceale Bay, Wirangu No.2 Association, DENR, EPNRM Board, and the District Council of Streaky Bay. Both projects involve seed collection, pest plant and animal eradication, and revegetation of coastal land in the Chain of Bays. Strong Aboriginal involvement is a defining feature of both projects.

"Linking the Chain of Bays" is funded through the Australian Government's Clean Energy Futures Biodiversity Fund, which supports projects that establish, restore, protect and manage biodiverse carbon stores.

"Linking the Chain of Bays" will link existing coastal Conservation Parks in the Chain of Bays by re-establishing habitat corridors on cleared areas of the Crown Coast Reserve.
