What can you do to help protect and sustain the Jawbone Marine Sanctuary
- Be careful where you are treading when you are swimming and snorkeling – try not to stand up on the reefs or seagrass beds.
- Discarded gear and rubbish can endanger marine animals and birds – take your rubbish home with you.
- Always replace any rocks or creatures you may have disturbed.
- Keep clear of bird nesting and roosting areas.
- Stay on boardwalks and paths so you don’t trample sensitive environments such as saltmarsh and mangroves.
- Dogs are not allowed within the Jawbone Marine Sanctuary (i.e. seaward of the high water mark). You may walk your dog on a leash in the adjacent Jawbone Reserve.
- Report people fishing or taking marine animals in the Sanctuary to the Department of Primary Industries on 13 FISH.
