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.
