Rescuing the Reef - Love & Money

panorama_reef.jpeg

When it comes to love, our Great Barrier Reef has no equal.

Three out of four Australians feel that the Reef is part of their identity as Australians, according to new research led by CSIRO’s Jeremy Goldberg. And as Australia’s ‘most inspiring icon’ the Reef was found to be over five times more significant than Uluru.

But when it comes to money, the Reef just ain’t up there.

World-renowned JCU water and reef researcher Jon Brodie from JCU says fixing the water quality in order to make the Reef more resilient to climate change would cost $5 billion and up (and up…).

Our governments’ answer? $240 million over the period 2014-2018.

$240 million – compared with the proposed $300+ million Townsville Stadium!

According to Jeremy Goldberg, almost 9 out of 10 Australians believe the Reef is under threat from climate change.

According to Jon, the need to fund the shortfall and to take stronger action on climate change are imperative for the future of the Reef.

Come along, listen to and questions the speakers, and find out how you can help NQCC fight for more funds for the Reef and stronger action on climate change.
