Koombana Bay in Bunbury, Western Australia is one of a few locations in Australia where bottlenose dolphins come to birth and look after their young.
Since 2006 ,at least 18 dolphin deaths have occured in Bunbury, Western Australia. Local press reguarly reports boat strikes, fishing line entanglements and general poor health of many other dolphins.
To date no government funding to investigate these deaths has occurred. Or recommendations made to prevent further deaths.
Currently a lobby group, The Bunbury Marine Facility Alliance has briefed key stakeholders and state government their plans to build a $30 million dollar 250 berth marine facility and commercial hub 800m from the well known birthing beach, which will be funded by the state government.
This petition is to prevent this from happening. We want to present this petition to State Parliment To tell the premier that money should be spent to investigate the current health of this important ecosystem, and protect the dolphins from further stress that a marina will have.
Sign this petition and tell the Government that the people say NO! to the construction of this marina!
We have defiantly attracted attention here in Bunbury!
I am writing to ask you to halt construction on the Bunbury Marine Facility, which will further stress and risk the health of the bottlenose dolphins who come to birth and look after their young in Koombana Bay.
