Our Great Barrier Reef is under threat from mega coal ports, destructive dredging, increasing ship movements and worsening climate change.

In the lead up to the federal election, join us at this family friendly event to call on all sides of politics to unite to protect the Reef. 

Rally for the reef

Essential details  

The Great Barrier Reef is facing the biggest, fastest and most widespread industrial development in its history. 

Mega-ports are proposed along the reef’s coastline. Millions of tonnes of seafloor will be dredged and dumped back into the waters of the Great Barrier Reef.

Thousands of coal freight ships will crisscross the reef each year. Climate change is already putting the reef under pressure and these developments will put the reef and the jobs that rely on it, at even greater risk. 

The reef needs stronger protection now. Our politicians need to show leadership. With the Federal election looming, it’s time to call on all sides of politics to unite to save the Great Barrier Reef. 

Join us at this family friendly event to call on all sides of politics to unite to protect the Reef.
