As per reports, it has been revealed that a new marine park will be opened to protect whales on the Kimberley coast. The Camden Sound Marine Park, will be created about 300 kilometers north-east of Broome, said Premier Colin Barnett and Environment Minister Bill Marmion.
The announcement has been welcomed by environmental groups, but they have warned the authorities concerned that they should remain alert from runaway industrialization. Conservation group Environs Kimberley said that the government should be cautious about the plans of oil and gas refineries.
He further affirmed that whales and their calves can be at a great risk, if gas refinery is going to be built at James Price Point. The development of park will start from the mid of 2012 and will cover 7000 square kilometers.
"The marine park can be even better if it protects areas along the coast like the mouth of the majestic Price Regent River which is a vital habitat for the snubfin dolphin", said WWF Australia Spokesperson Paul Gamblin.
The government is spending 2.3 million for the development of park. They have also promised to spend $10 million for the protection and management of the park for four years starting from 2016.
