Save the Barrier Reef from CoalBY EARTHFIRST
Greenpeace is taking on one of the most urgent issues facing our nation: the enormous expansion of coal mining and coal exports. Not only does it spell disaster for our climate but it threatens one of Australia’s most precious treasures, the Great Barrier Reef.
While the reef has been under pressure for years, it is now facing a devastating new threat. They have released a report
that documents the vast scale and impact of the coal industry’s plans in and near the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
The pending coal boom spells disaster for our unique and ecologically sensitive reef and for our climate.
