The Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary is one of our community’s most treasured and significant environmental assets and I want to better protect it for this generation and the next.
Over the last year, members of our community have expressed concerns about a small but disruptive number of boaters and fishers from outside of our community who have consistently and unlawfully anchored or fished
within the sanctuary.
Better protecting our Marine Sanctuary starts with better educating those that use our Bay. It also includes using technology to monitor and deter unlawful activity. I will also continue to advocate for greater and more visible Parks
Victoria and Victoria Police patrolling of our area’s greatest environmental and ecological asset.
We need greater protection for the Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary and we need to act now to protect it for generations to come.
