Site of Proposed Ocean Reef Marina (any why it's flawed)



  • THIS MOST POPULAR PROJECT NEEDS RECONSIDERATION.

  • UNDER THE CURRENT PLANNING PROPOSAL 17% OF MARMION MARINE PARK’S ICONIC INSHORE REEF HABITAT WILL BE DESTROYED. THERE WILL BE FURTHER DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON THE AREA TO THE NORTH.

  • IF THE MARINA IS BUILT SOUTH FROM THE CURRENT BOAT HARBOUR, DAMAGE TO THE MARINE PARK WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY LESS. 

  • THE ABALONE POPULATION ON THIS REEF SYSTEM IS WITHOUT PEER ANYWHERE IN WA.

  • IT MUST BE PROTECTED. GENERALLY LIKE MUCH OF THE WORLD OUR ABALONE POPULATIONS ARE IN SERIOUS DECLINE. THIS HABITAT ABOUT TO BE DESTROYED IS THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN. 

  • OUR GOVERNMENT IS HERE TO PROTECT OUR MARINE PARKS NOT TO FACILITATE DEVELOPMENT WHICH WILL DESTROY THE BIODIVERSITY THE PARKS WERE CREATED TO PROTECT.

Please see short video footage at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpVotvrWpYs to see first-hand what will be destroyed.
