Consultation underway for proposed South Coast Marine Park

​Consultation is now underway for a proposed marine park on the south coast of Western Australia as part of the McGowan Government's Plan for Our Parks initiative.

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA), in partnership with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, will be consulting the commercial, recreational and charter fishing sectors, along with aquaculture, environmental groups, local government, traditional owners, tourism groups and the community.

The proposed marine park will be jointly managed with traditional owners, who will be closely involved in the planning process. The marine study area under consideration extends from Bremer Bay eastward to the Western Australian border.
