Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to #SaveTheReef: http://www.SaveTheReef.org.au
Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead.
like dugongs. they’re mad important and live on the reef
Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. The agency charged with "the protection, wise use, understanding and enjoyment of the Great Barrier Reef in perpetuity" has allowed it to be sold out for short-term profits.
Late yesterday, they granted a permit to dump five million tonnes of dredge spoil inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
This destructive project is now allowed to go-ahead - unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court. Click here to learn more, and help fund the legal challenge to save our Reef:

WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES?? THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!!
getting sick and tired of governments treating the ocean like its a fucking garbage can fuck
what the actual fuck
-There are over 500 MILLION PEOPLE who rely on coral reefs for their food and livelihoods.
-Coral Reefs are widely used in the treatment of cancer, HIV, cardiovascular diseases and ulcers.
It’s known as the “rainforests of the sea”, coral reefs are the greatest expression of ocean life and the LARGEST living structure on the planet.
-Over 25% of all marine fish species find their homes in coral reefs.
-Coral polyps have a lifespan ranging from 2 years to hundreds of years, while corals in colonies are known to live from 5 years to several centuries. Some coral reefs present today are over 50 million years old
-The corals get their color from tiny microscopic plants living within them.
-They capture energy from the sun by photosynthesis, just like plants do. Thus being extremely important to our planet, for it carries infinite potential energetic compounds of information through it’s genetic coding.
-The growth rate of a coral reef is less than 3 cm per year; hence it takes several years to form a large reef.
-Coral reefs protect coastal dwellings, agricultural land and beaches by forming natural barriers, along the shorelines of the sea.
These are just some facts as to what is being provided to each of us by this grand structure of the universe. Please spread the message, so All may see the importance in making a change, not only by speaking up but by going within yourself and realizing that we are ALL equal. All is life and by consuming life through decay, aka: consuming meat, we lower our frequencies, torture & destroy the life of many. Be conscious in all of that which you do.
