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.

Thank you for taking action to protect the Reef!

We'll make sure your message is heard by the next Australian government: it's not okay to treat the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area as a dumping ground.

So they assume that just because it's underwater, it's okay to toss trash there? I'd say that's sheer lunacy, except that's an insult to the moon.

It's not appropriate to use it as a trash heap, any more than (as the petition suggested) filling in the Grand Canyon with garbage. (Not that that may not be happening,. too, with tourist remains, but the point is that it isn't *deliberate* in the way using the Reef in the way would be.)

Signed and noted. Nothing is untouchable in Australia at the moment and this makes me ashamed to be Australian.
We have to vote on the 7th of September and really there is neither of the major parties that can be trusted to do the right thing by the Reef. Our new Federal Government will be dumb, Queensland State Government is dumber,
and together they will be dumbest. God help Australia.
