Draft management plans released for comment
The Pilbara inshore islands nature reserves and proposed additions draft management plan has been made available by the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions for public comment.
The draft plan covers 174 islands, islets and rocks between Exmouth Gulf and Cape Preston that provide habitat for a variety of threatened species including turtles and birds.
You are invited to have your say on how the biodiversity, cultural and social values of the islands will be protected and conserved into the future.
You can access the draft plan, watch a short video about the values of the islands, and have your say via an online submission form at dbca.wa.gov.au/haveyoursay.
