Residents to host Reef Hour
THE recently formed Whitsunday Residents Against Dumping (WRAD) group, will be hosting the next Reef Hour IV, on Thursday, March 20 from 5.30-6.30pm.
The event will be held at Cannonvale’s Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) club on Altmann Avenue.
The group has formed in response to recent decisions to permit the dumping of dredge spoil from the port of Abbot Point inside the Great Barrier Reef marine park.
The focus for Reef Hour IV will be a question and answer session with a panel, consisting of local dive instructor Tony Fontes, local tourism operator Tony Brown, spokeswoman for the Abbot Point Action Group Maria Macdonald and Senior Researcher for the Mackay Conservation Group, Patricia Julien.
This will be an open forum where people are welcome to come along and ask questions, receive an update, and round the evening off with live music from local musicians.
