About the campaign
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world. But it is under threat from the most widespread, rapid and damaging set of industrial developments in Queensland’s history. The Queensland Government is fast-tracking mega port developments, dredging and dumping of millions of tonnes of seabed and rock, and encouraging a shipping superhighway.

The Australian Government is approving these developments, including one of the world’s biggest coal ports at Abbot Point, 50 km from the Whitsunday Islands.

It’s your Reef, but you’re going to have to fight for it. Fight for the Reef is a partnership between WWF-Australia and the Australian Marine Conservation Society. Fight for the Reef is working with the Australian and international community to protect the Reef and the $6 billion tourism industry and 60,000 jobs it supports.
