Save the reef

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS -

AUS­TRALIA is not a third world coun­try, but we are build­ing ma­rine ports along an in­ter­na­tional world won­der the Great Bar­rier Reef.

If you have ever had the chance to see our reef you will be amazed at the species that call it home; the Maori Wrasse fish, for ex­am­ple, that live more than 90 years and even change sex.

If you have not been to the reef, come see and en­joy our most loved down un­der, see that even fish have dif­fer­ent moods each day, see that ev­ery­thing ex­ists down there in a del­i­cate bal­ance. We must un­der­stand that bal­ance, so we can make the right de­ci­sions about the reef.

The way I see ev­ery liv­ing species - from the tiny ant to the Great White Sharks - need to be re­spected, pro­tected, loved and cared for, as it would be a part of my fam­ily. Even you can make a dif­fer­ence – help fight for the reef to­day and bring those multi bil­lion dol­lar cor­po­ra­tions who short time profit from reef de­struc­tion to ac­count. Go on­line to www.fight­­ef­fight­ing-fund and do­nate to a reef-fight­ing fund.

Be a part of pro­tect­ing the reef. An­nika Grun­wald DINGO BEACH
