Every day thousands of marine animals are injured or die as a result of plastic pollution in our oceans and waterways.
In New South Wales we treasure our beautiful beaches, coastal lakes and harbours, but more and more plastic pollution is clogging our marine environment and injuring and killing the marine life we love.
We can do more to clean up our precious natural environment and stop plastic pollution.
The Greens recognise the immense personal and community impact of shark bites and our hearts go out to those impacted by shark bites. But shark mesh nets are outdated technology and they can’t guarantee people’s safety. What they will do is kill large numbers of marine life including turtles, dolphins, whales and sharks.
