Callala Beach Progress Association has started the petition - "NSW Department of Primary Industries: Relocate the Planned Commercial Shellfish Aquaculture Leases in Jervis Bay" and need your help to get it off the ground.
Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now?
Here's the link:
Here's why it's important:
Callala Beach within Jervis Bay National Marine park is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia. The location of the aquaculture leases will result in a significant visual impairment of the beautiful coastline of this area, as well as disruption due to the noise of commercial fishing vessels. In short, the leases will be a blight upon one of the most beautiful and popular vista in Jervis Bay.
