Email your local MP to protect Australia’s Heard & McDonald Islands

[from Save our Marine Life]

Lying 4,000 km southwest of Perth, the Heard and McDonald Islands are the only Sub-Antarctic island group with an entirely intact ecosystem, free of any known species directly introduced by humans! 
Right now, the Government is making decisions about the levels of protection for these islands.

More than 25,000 Australians have told Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek that we want strong protection for our Sub-Antarctic marine life. But it’s vital that there are others in the Parliament who are backing this protection.  

You can help by telling your MP to back science-based protection to influence this decision. 

With your help and the support of your MP we can ensure the Heard and McDonald Islands, and the millions of marine animals that call it home, can be protected for future generations.
