As a result we’re calling on the Seaforth community to protect their patch.
We ask that they report poaching that’s occurring in their backyard.
We also ask that people don’t be complacent. We encourage people to get out there and use the marine park, the Seaforth area is very special to a lot of local people in Mackay.
Know where you are and what activities are allowed. Check your free zoning maps, check your GPS or risk a $2100 fine.
We’ll have aerial and vessel patrols that will run day and night.
Everyone’s got a responsibility to protect the Reef for future generations.
