GREAT BARRIER REEF BLOG

Great Barrier Reef Blog

The Great Barrier Reef Blog is intended as a forum for discussion about the promotion and protection of the Great Barrier Reef and the life it sustains. There an numerous threats to the very existence of this natural wonder and here, we attempt to identify them and appropriate strategies for countering them. Unfortunately many power brokers believe that the Reef is either a insignificant dumping ground for the Oil and Gas industries, or a resource zone at the service of such. This is unimaginable considering that the decline of the Great Barrier Reef has been well documented by marine scientist, conservationists and locals alike.

We believe that by fostering discussion, transparency and community support for the protection of the Reef, it’s possible to change the tide of destruction and provide the Reef with what it needs the most, time to recover.

Please feel free to comment and bookmark this Great Barrier Reef Blog. Please also invite your friends to like and share it via their social and professional networks and in “real life” via word of mouth. The more support that can be garnished for the protection of the Reef, the more likely it is that when critical decisions are made, our collective voices will be heard.
