|The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s truly iconic natural places.
It’s beautiful, valuable and right now, it’s under threat.
Over the next few months there are some really important decisions that will be made: the environmental approval for the expansion of the Abbot Point coal terminal, the potential use of taxpayer money to prop up the project and the proposed mega port in Cairns.
If these projects go ahead it will mean increased dredging and shipping on our Reef.
Together we must work with local communities, Australians, and millions of people from around the world to protect the Reef’s future.
As Flic would say, it’s your Reef, but you’re going to have to fight for it. And we will.
I can’t wait to work with you all,
P.S. You can share my story on Facebook with all of your friends and let them know you’re fighting for the Reef
