This is wrong! Why can't Australia understand that it will be a disaster when the reef is completely dead and gone? This makes me ill!

Thanks Cal, I hope the UN gets it's way because I'm an Aussie who has fought long and hard to stop these port developments from going ahead. It's not just the Barrier Reef that needs protecting it's our whole coastline and the marine life as well. These assets belong to the people and not Governments or corporations.

This is absolutely heartbreaking to read. I am so pissed off at the lack of interest that governments seem to show when it comes to the protection of our world's greatest ecological treasures. Let's just keep on burning the coal, dredging the seabed, dumping toxic waste, burning down the forests, kill off all of our most incredible animal species and fracture the f...c out of the Earth. What? Is there something wrong with that?

Nimue What's not right..the UN possible decision or the Australian Government..you are a fellow Australian. I had an invitation today from the Labor Party- Environment Minister - Tony Burke to participate in promoting the Marine Parks for the Labor "which will be demolished if Abbott gets in" his words, not mine..I declined. What's the point in having "marine parks" if there are ports going through the middle of them?????.
