Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion to disallow four marine parks management plans, meaning that the plans remain in force.

Greens Senators Louise Pratt and Peter Whish-Wilson introduced these disallowance motions, arguing that the plans (along with one other):

revoke about 40 million hectares of high-level national marine parks, almost twice the area of Victoria. This is equivalent to revoking half of Australia's national parks on land.
