One of the things a successful implementation of our petition will do, is prevent the removal of molluscs and other sea creatures from the rock platforms at Mona Vale beach.

Amongst a variety of other birds, we see Sooty Oystercatchers here from time to time, which are endangered in NSW.

This aquatic reserve would help protect the food source for the seabirds that visit and call Bongin Bongin home.
