During their investigative trip to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park this week, UNESCO representatives are meeting with a range of stakeholders: scientists, environment groups, state government, fishing and tourism industry representatives, local councils and mining companies. It's a comprehensive list, all with an interest in the Reef, but one group's missing -- the Australian community.
What do we stand to lose is the Great Barrier Reef is destroyed? Watch this video of our beautiful Reef.
Please join hundreds of thousands of Australians and add your name to the petition for the Great Barrier Reef:
Federal Environment Minister:
Please take immediate action to protect the Great Barrier Reef and halt all industrial development activity in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and surrounds. We ask that you do not approve any new major coastal developments until the strategic assessment of the Reef has been completed.
