The Great Barrier Reef is fighting for its life. It’s just experienced the worst coral bleaching event in its history and farm pollution runoff is fuelling a Crown of Thorns starfish outbreak.
We urgently need our politicians to act if we are to stop the damage from spreading and give the Reef a chance to recover.
The Australian has reported Bill Shorten will fly to Cairns this morning to announce Labor's Great Barrier Reef plan.
Confronting new statistics released by Professor Terry Hughes today show the coral death toll continues to mount on the Great Barrier Reef, with mass bleaching killing 35% of corals on the northern and central Reef.
The shock revelation this morning that the Australian Government has pressured UNESCO to hide the impacts of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef is a clear demonstration of spin over the strong action needed to protect the natural icon.
From shark fisheries in the Great Barrier Reef to our southern seas, Australia is still sending shark fins overseas by the tonne.
And we’re importing fins from countries with poorer fishing regulations than our own, countries that cruelly cut off the fins of sharks while they're still alive and dump the bodies overboard.
It is unacceptable and it has got to stop! Please sign our petition.
