Donate Now to Fight for the Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef ecosystem on our blue planet, representing about 10% of all the world's coral reefs. It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is dearly loved by locals and visitors alike.
It supports a $6 billion tourism industry, recreational and commercial fishing and represents a unique way of life for coastal communities along the Reef coast.
But all this is under threat from plans for unprecedented expansion of the coal industry and its associated infrastructure. There are at least 40 developments on the drawing board in or near the Great Barrier Reef. These include open cut mines, railways, gas fields, new ports and expansions of existing ports, including the creation of the largest coal export terminal in the world - only 50kms from the Whitsunday Islands. This is too much, and happening too quickly for a reef already under pressure.
The future of the Reef hangs in the balance. Please donate today and help us Fight for the Reef.
