Turning the Tide Newsletter – Spring 2023
Our north Queensland Fight For Our Reef volunteer community has been making waves with a series of events over the past few months building support for our Reef.
More than 80 people attended our World Heritage Campaign Launch Party in April. They heard from Reef tour operator Mark Fraenkel, and Ema Parker, an inspiring high school student and passionate advocate for Reef conservation.
In May, we co-hosted a community action with the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre, calling for “climate action now” from state politicians as they attended the first Queensland Government regional parliamentary sitting in Cairns in 15 years. Our action helped to spread the message that we need stronger emissions reduction targets to help protect the Great Barrier Reef and the 64,000 jobs it supports.
Our vollies have also been holding market stalls including at Cairns EcoFiesta, where the brilliant team got hundreds of petition signatures calling for Reef protection. It was an incredible and inspiring day!
Our volunteers come from all walks of life and backgrounds. You can get involved in a variety of different ways – there’s something for everyone.
