Just 50 days.

That’s all that’s left until the World Heritage Committee meets to decide whether the Reef is on track to return to good health, or whether our Governments must do more to do restore the world’s largest living organism.

Moment’s like this can be really daunting – will all of our hard work pay off? Will the World Heritage Committee ensure that our Governments act to restore the Reef’s health? Make sure you ask them to protect the Reef here:

Our expert policy team have done a full analysis and developed this checklist of what the Government needs to do before the meeting.  They must get this done if they want be able to say the Reef is on a path to better health.


But the good news is, we’re ready for it – we’ve just passed 250 000 signatures on our petition demanding an end to the industrial destruction of the Great Barrier Reef, and in the coming weeks, we’re going to present it to the World Heritage Committee with the message that the world wants to see the Reef return to health!


And check this out – the people are with us.  Here’s a vox-pop from the Courier Mail – from just this week!


We know what needs to be done.  We need to keep getting people to support our Reef, right up until the World Heritage Meeting.  If you know someone who hasn’t yet signed – please urge them to add their name at – every single name will be delivered to the committee.

Thanks for helping us bring new people into the movement – it’s going to make all the difference.
