Whale Bay Public Meeting: The Motion

The public of Whale Bay demands that the Shire Council immediately urge the State Minister of Environment to protect the whale watching tourist industry which is vital to the economy of Whale Bay by strictly enforcing all existing whale protection measures, and further reduce human impacts by:
  1. placing a ban on all commercial fishing within five kilometres of the coastline; and

  2. imposing a $10 per person tourist levy on all tour boat passengers to fund whale conservation.
