In this article, the author discusses the possible effects of the decision of Australian Department of Environment to formalize the marine sanctuaries and "no go" zones in South Australia. He believes that such action removes the rightful heritage of the people as they are prohibited to use South Australian waters. He also expresses his disappointment in the action of scientific working group which he believes should provide an explanation of the benefits and goals of the marine parks.
