Great Barrier Reef At Risk

Action: Stop Pollution

November 11, 2012   Action Alert ID# 8

 

Greenpeace welcomes the announcement of a comprehensive strategic assessment of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area by Federal and State Governments, but warns that it will be an empty gesture without an immediate halt to new approvals of major infrastructure while the assessment is being done.

“It would make a mockery of the strategic assessment if the government green lights more large-scale industrial infrastructure in the Great Barrier Reef coastal zone before the evaluation period has concluded,” said Greenpeace Spokesperson John Hepburn.

“We are facing imminent approval of a massive expansion of coal ports all up the Queensland coast that would involve tens of millions of tonnes of dredging and thousands more dirty coal ships passing through the reef.”
