Tell Greg Hunt to reject the Abbot Point port expansion

Federal Minister for Environment, Greg Hunt, will soon make a decision whether to allow the Abbot Point port development to proceed.

If approves the port development over one million cubic metres of material will be dredged from the sea floor destroying its beautiful coral communities that teem with life.

The reef is under enough stress from sediment and climate change already.

Tell Greg Hunt to reject the Abbot Point port expansion.

To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

We believe that the coral reefs close to the proposed port development at Abbot Point are significant and should be given the highest consideration.

We call on the Minister for Environment to reject the proposed port expansion at Abbot Point.

    I read a report saying there is not just 1 coal port approved for Abbot Point, but two! Shame Australian Government, shame. Helping destroy a world icon for a few bucks from a dying industry that has been scientifically proven to harm the planet. Shame, shame, shame

    In all honesty can you live with contributing to destroying the wonderful Barrier Reef?It’s a known fact that the reef is already in trouble.It is millions of years old, surely one person can not be in control of destroying such a complex and amazing site.

    The Great Barrier Reef is a world heritage site, under enormous duress from global warming. That the government of Australia in any way should collaborate in the destruction of the United Nations-designated wonder is an act of hostility toward the citizens of the world. You can expect economic boycotts and permanent obloquy.

    We need to preserve our environment. It is the responsibility of the Governments – Federal or State should reject the application of approval of development.
