Noted Thanks for sharing Victoria The Barrier Reef should be on the list of endangered, it has been slowly being destroyed for several years. As long as Australia keeps Tony Abbott in office it will be doomed has he done anything to help save the iconic koala bear, and he wanted to log the oldest old growth forest in the world. This man is a walking disaster.

Tony Abbott must go if the Great Barrier Reef is to have any chance at all. He's a heartless braindead imbecile.

Noted with So Much Frustration and Angst !! Have signed So Many Different Petitions to save our Beautiful Barrier Reef - and All seems to fall on the Very Deaf Ears Of Determined Short-Sighted and Greedy Idiots who seem Hell Bent on Destroying This Very Fragile and Beautiful Ecosystem - all for the sake of a quick buck and never mind the Permanent Disastrous Consequences !!!

It would be the greatest tragedy if we were to lose the Great barrier Reef, it must be protected!
