The Great Barrier Reef needs your help! The Abbott government is calling for public comment on their plans to dredge millions of tonnes of seafloor in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and dump nearby the Reef.
It’s a disaster for the Reef, and we have just days to speak out. Use the tool below to make a public comment on the proposal to dredge and dump around our greatest natural wonder.
To the Abbott Government,
The Great Barrier Reef is a stunning natural wonder. It is the world’s largest coral reef ecosystem and it is under threat. The Queensland Government wants to dredge millions of tonnes of seafloor from within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and dump the spoil right next to the Reef and near nationally significant wetlands.
The Abbot Point Growth Gateway Project (EPBC 2015/7467) will have unacceptable impacts on the outstanding universal values of the Great Barrier Reef: I’m calling on you to exercise your power and reject this proposal.
The science is clear: we can have the reef or coal, we cannot have both. I urge you to protect the reef and put an end to this proposal to dredge and dump at Abbot Point.
