A Class act
Rottnest Island is a Class A Reserve renowned for its high conservation and community values. It is deserving of the greatest degree of protection and therefore all plant and animals on Rottnest Island are protected by law. But what does this really mean?
Take nothing but photos and leave nothing but footprints.
Fishing is an exception to this principle; however the Department of Fisheries rules and regulations, plus some other specific rules apply, including the existence of 5 marine sanctuary zones at key locations around the Island.
