The Great Barrier Reef needs you!
The WWF urgently requires your help by taking part in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s community consultation process, to increase protection of our Reef. Your participation is needed before August 7 to counter the adverse feedback submitted by many disgruntled members within Queensland’s recreational and commercial fishing industries. Negative responses may drastically alter the future protection of the reef. If these responses are allowed to dominate the process unchallenged, vast areas of the Reef could remain unprotected. Currently only 4.6% of the Marine Park is protected by “Green Zones” (Marine Sanctuaries) where fishing, collecting, trawling and extractive activities are prohibited.
You have an opportunity to help increase the Green Zones on the Great Barrier Reef if you act before 7 August.
