Have your say on Yawuru/Roebuck Bay

Draft management plans for two of Broome’s natural jewels—the Proposed Yawuru Nagulagun / Roebuck Bay Marine Park and the Yawuru Birragun Conservation Park have been released for public comment.

These two areas will be jointly managed by Parks and Wildlife and the Yawuru native title holders and form part of the Yawuru conservation estate. The proposed marine park will be the third of five marine parks to be created by the State Government under its Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy.

Broome is an internationally renowned tourist destination and gateway for tourists to explore the Kimberley. The Yawuru conservation estate’s natural rugged beauty, spectacular turquoise waters and abundant wildlife offer a variety of attractions and opportunities for cultural and nature-based tourism.

The plans are open for public comment for three months until Friday 25 September 2015. View the Yawuru conservation estate management plans Have your say page.
