"Reef at Risk" in Gladstone

Video | 7 March, 2012

Greenpeace activists have painted the message "Reef in Danger" on the side of a coal ship - the Panamanian-flagged Chou San- berthed at Gladstone RG Tanna Coal Terminal, as a United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) team arrive to inspect the harbour.
The UNESCO mission is in Australia due to concerns about the impacts of the Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) industry's expansion in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Site. Last week Greenpeace released a report showing that massive coal mining expansion planned in Central Queensland's Galilee Basin would result in six times more coal ships moving through the Great Barrier Reef and enough material being dredged to fill the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) 67 times.
