save our reef

 He had a lot of fun at the Rally for the Reef. There was so much to watch and talk about: fish costumes, umbrellas, bikes, kids, hats, flags, a diver!

I've been following the "Save Our Reef" campaign, and I continue to be shocked that we could even be considering the planned mining developments, which will destroy the WORLD HERITAGE Great Barrier Reef (with devastating global follow-on effects). I just find it very confusing and heart-breaking. 
To quote the campaign:

  • 3 million cubic metres of seabed would be dredged and dumped in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
  • We would more than double our coal exports, obliterating emissions targets and hurtling us towards catastrophic climate change. 
  • It would create shipping superhighways where thousands of coal ships will drive through our Reef every year.

Please sign the petition if you haven't already!

We rode our bikes into the city for the rally. We love riding as a family!
