Minister Huntís decision to allow dredging in the Reef World Heritage Area was a big blow.

But we still have a chance to get it banned! --- Reef authorities have not yet issued the dumping permit port developers need.

Tell the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to reject waste dumping in our Reef.

Dear Dr Russell Reichelt,

I know you love the Great Barrier Reef, and you understand how much trouble itís in, from threats like climate change, water pollution, and coastal development. So Iím appealing to you not to allow coal port developers at Abbot Point to dump 3 million cubic metres of dredge spoil in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

There is strong scientific evidence that increasing sediment levels and muddy plumes from dredging damage inshore coral reefs. EIGHTY PERCENT OF AUSTRALIANS ARE OPPOSED TO DUMPING IN THE WORLD HERITAGE AREA!!! --- Dredging at Abbot Point is also opposed by local fishermen and tourism operators.

I want to see the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority stand up for whatís best for the Reef and our global climate.

Please donít issue a permit to dump on the Reef.

Yours sincerely
