Demand Australia Recognize Damages to Great Ba. Target: Australian Environment Minister Greg Hunt Goal: Reinstate chapter on damage caused to the Great Barrier Reef in UN climate report which was removed out of fear of losing tourism revenue.

Demand Australia Recognize Damages to Great Ba

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest reef system in the world and home to thousands of species of fish and coral, many of which cannot live without the other. This beautiful yet fragile ecosystem has been threatened and eroded by human activity and is at risk of being irreparably damaged and exacerbating already high extinction rates. The cumulative effects of climate change–runoff, coastal development, fishing, recreation, coral bleaching, and ocean acidification–together pose a major threat to the life in this unique ecosystem. Rather than recognize and face the threat, Australia removed a chapter describing such threats to the Great Barrier Reef from the UN climate report. Dear Minister Hunt, Save the Last Living Half of the Great Barrier Reef. Target: Australian Minister for the Environment Greg Hunt Goal: Address rapidly deteriorating health of the Great Barrier Reef.

Save the Last Living Half of the Great Barrier Reef

Half of the world’s largest living ecosystem is “dead or dying” and the entire ecosystem faces extinction according to scientists in one of the grimmest reports on the health of the Great Barrier Reef. The reef has been ravaged by a process known as “bleaching” in which water warms and causes coral to expel the algae living inside of it. Experts estimate that a staggering 93 percent of the reef has been affected by bleaching.

Save the Great Barrier Reef From Coal Mining. Target: Greg Hunt, MP, Australian Minister for the Environment Goal: Halt the development of the Carmichael Coal Mine in Queensland, Australia.

Save the Great Barrier Reef From Coal Mining

The Australian government approved the development of a major coal mine in the state of Queensland near the Great Barrier Reef. The Carmichael mine is a U.S. $12 billion/AUS $16 billion project with devastating environmental consequences for Australia’s air, water, soil, and wildlife. The mine would be the largest in Australia. It will excavate an estimated 60 million tons of coal a year, destined for export to India. According to the Australian Conservation Fund, the mine would produce over 128 billion tons of carbon dioxide and deplete 297 billion liters of groundwater. The mine and its associated infrastructure development — most notably a planned railway — would only create an estimated 10,000 jobs. Dear Mr. The Carmichael coal mine project in Queensland should not be allowed to proceed. Sincerely, [Your Name Here] Take Another Look. Le "plus grand aquarium de la planète" risque de se briser.

Une banque pour détruire une merveille ?!

Aidez-nous à atteindre 750 000 En Inde, le roi du charbon sollicite un prêt d’1 milliard de dollars pour transformer un des trésors les plus précieux de notre planète bleue en route maritime. Mais si nous réagissons rapidement, nous pouvons bloquer son milliard et préserver la Grande barrière de corail pour les baleines et les dauphins, pas pour les cargos de charbon. L’UNESCO affirme que le projet menace la Grande barrière, et huit banques internationales de premier plan s’en sont détournées.

Tout repose désormais sur la State Bank of India. La pression de l'opinion publique a déjà fait changer d'avis d'autres banques, alors signez pour dire non au pire prêt bancaire du monde. WWF (World Wildlife Fund / World Wide Fund for Nature) Stop Treating the Great Barrier Reef as a Dump. Mr.

Here’s a conundrum for you: Would it be better to protect Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, which is visible from space, attracts more than a million visitors every year, and is home to thousands of species of fish, sharks, and other marine animals?
