I just wanted to thank everyone who signed my Ghost Nets Australia Project to Tony Burke Minister for Environment in Australia.  Along with other people lobbying for funding we have been succesful as Care for Country has now received funding for the next two years. Ghost Nets Australia provides an important service monitoring and collecting ghost nets from the Timor and Arafura Seas. These nets are killers of marine life, including turtles, marine mammals and surface swimming fish.
