Marine Parks

We have been strong supporters of the South Australian Government's Marine Park program. Three of the four bays in the Chain of Bays will be protected within the outer boundary of Marine Park 3 (currently known as "West Coast Bays" Marine Park). All of the waters of Baird Bay, Searcy Bay and Sceale Bay are enclosed within Marine Park 3. This Park also protects Venus Bay and the northern section of Anxious Bay. We remain hopeful, that in the future, Corvisart Bay and Olive Island will also be recognised for protection, within the outer boundaries of this important marine reserve. We will continue to campaign for the inclusion of these unique areas, which contain some of the most spectacular and diverse reef systems in Southern Temperate waters. Our group is represented on the Advisory Board for Marine Park 3, which will be instrumental in developing zoning and regulations within the marine park. When first proposed, the draft outer boundaries of this park were much smaller, but the enlarged outer boundary of Marine Park 3 is an important recognition for the uniqueness, diversity and condition of the marine environments of the Chain of Bays.
