Stand Up for the Reef

On the 31st of January the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) will make a decision on whether to allow 3 million cubic metres of dredge spoil to be dumped in the Reef’s waters.

 Join us this Friday 24th January to let GBRMPA know that you don’t support dumping in the Reef’s waters.

This Friday - one week out from the looming decision - we are taking the community’s message to GBRMPA. In Townsville, a representative from the tourism industry will meet with General Manager Bruce Elliott to present a petition and urge him to refuse the sea-dumping permit for Abbot Point. This is the final stand to show that majority of Australians want dredging and dumping banned in the Reef.

In Mackay we will meet outside the GBRMPA office and make the message clear that we don’t support dumping in the Reef. We are the voice of the Great Barrier Reef and together we can remind GBRMPA it’s their job to protect our international icon.

 

Details:

What: Taking a final stand for our Reef to say no to dumping in the Reef.

Where: 43 River Street (cnr of River and Woods St), Mackay QLD 4740

When: 12 noon this Friday 24th January

 

Lets stand together this Friday and remind GBRMPA it’s their job to protect our international icon.

WHEN
January 24, 2014 at 12pm - 1pm
