CABINET WILL SHORTLY BE CONSIDERING THE RESULTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF A MANGROVE ZONE MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE HARBOUR, AND WILL BE SEEKING COMMENT FROM RELEVANT AUTHORITIES. THE FINAL MANGROVE ZONE PLAN WILL BE A MAJOR STEP TOWARDS RESPONSIBLE PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE COASTAL ZONE. THE STARTING OBJECTIVE OF THE PLAN IS TO RETAIN 80 PER CENT OF THE PRODUCTIVITY (AS DISTINCT FROM AREA) OF THE MANGROVES WHILE ALLOWING NECESSARY DEVELOPMENT TO PROCEED. CONSERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT WILL BE INTEGRATED AND BALANCED. MR SPEAKER, THE GOVERNMENT IS ALSO TAKING STEPS TO ENSURE THE PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE WHICH IS SPECIAL TO THE TERRITORY. A GOOD EXAMPLE IS THE RESEARCH BEING CARRIED OUT ON OUR ENDANGERED GOULDIAN FINCH. THIS RESEARCH IS BEING FUNDED BY THE WORLD WILDLIFE FUND, WHICH IN TURN RECEIVED THE MONEY FOR THE RESEARCH FROM TWO COMPANIES EXPLORING FOR MINERALS IN THE VICINITY OF ONE OF THE FINCH'S BREEDING A R E A S . THESE COMPANIES ARE BILLITON AUSTRALIA GOLD PTY LTD AND ZAPOPAN NL. I AM ALSO PLEASED TO SAY THAT ORGANISERS OF THE KANGAROO '89 EXERCISE ORDERED THAT NO MILITARY ACTIVITIES BE CARRIED OUT IN THE FINCH'S BREEDING AREAS. - 11
