Tell FNQ Candidates: Our Reef and Region depend on Clean Energy

The Queensland Election is on Saturday 31 October.
Tell the candidates in Far North Queensland to commit to creating clean energy jobs – and give our Great Barrier Reef and region a fighting chance.

At the same time as COVID-19 has spread around the world, our Great Barrier Reef has been hit with record breaking temperatures, leading to a mass coral bleaching event. This is the third climate change triggered mass bleaching in just five years. Fortunately, reefs off Cairns avoided the worst of this year’s bleaching, but we may not be so lucky next time.

This state election, candidates have an opportunity to make a big difference. They can rebuild the Queensland economy and tackle the climate crisis at the same time.

You can make a big impact today – by getting local candidates in FNQ to commit to creating thousands of jobs in clean energy, not more dirty fossil fuels that will push our Reef to the brink.

Will you write to the Election Candidates in Far North Queensland, and demand they stand up for our Reef and local livelihoods by committing to clean energy jobs?

Together we can use our voice and our vote to make Queensland do our fair share on climate change, which is the biggest threat to our Reef. Together we can also secure resilience projects to clean up our Reef’s waterways and make sure its fisheries are sustainable. But with powerful vested interests fighting us, we can only win if we show that Queenslanders are demanding action.
