The National Party is back. I, and also on behalf of Senator Waters, move:

That the Senate—

(a)   notes the unique biodiversity and natural heritage of the Coral Sea that is home to the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle and endangered green turtle;

(b)   recognises that 2012 will be the 70th anniversary of the historically important Battle of the Coral Sea in 1942 that changed the face of World War II; and

(c)   calls on the Government to declare the Coral Sea the world's largest marine national park.
