Member for Manly and Parliamentary Secretary for Veterans James Griffin, encourages the community to attend their local Anzac Day Service to honour the service and sacrifice of the Australian Defence Force and our Veterans.

Member for Manly James Griffin has taken action in protecting the iconic Cabbage Tree Bay Marine Environment as he calls for regulation changes to the marine protection zone around the area. Following continued damage to rare seagrass habitats due to boat anchoring, Mr Griffin is calling on public support to amend the current aquatic reserve regulations at Cabbage Tree Bay to provide better protections.
Mr Griffin said action was needed to protect the precious but fragile ecosystems that have served as a diving and snorkelling draw card to people across Sydney.
