To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament of the Senate assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows:

That the Western Australian State Government intends pursuing the nomination of the Ningaloo Marine Park and the North West Cape for World Heritage listing, which has the potential to adversely impact on the local Exmouth community.

Your petitioners request that the Senate:

Calls on the Federal Government Minister for the Environment and Heritage to reject any proposal to nominate the Ningaloo Marine Park and the North West Cape for inscription on the World Heritage list, until such time as there has been adequate consultation with the residents of Exmouth and local community concerns have been resolved.

by Senator Eggleston (from 412 citizens).
