Join the Fight for the Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world

But it is under threat from the most widespread, rapid and damaging set of industrial developments in Queensland’s history.

The Queensland Government is fast-tracking the dredging and dumping of millions of tonnes of seabed and rock in the Reef’s waters, and a near-doubling of bulk carriers cutting through the Reef.

The federal government is considering approval of these developments, including the world’s biggest coal port at Abbot Point, 50 km from the Whitsunday Islands.
It’s your Reef, but you’re going to have to fight for it.

Fight for the Reef is a partnership between WWF-Australia and the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS).

Fight for the Reef is working with the Australian community to protect the Reef and the $6 billion tourism industry and 60,000 jobs it supports.

The Great Barrier Reef is at serious risk of becoming a dumping ground for millions of tonnes of sludge, to make way for bigger ports and allow thousands more coal ships to plough through its pristine waters.
