Bob Ir­win to rally for reef

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WILDLIFE war­rior Bob Ir­win will be com­ing to Air­lie Beach on Satur­day, April 13, as part of a Rally for the Reef.

The rally has been or­gan­ised by the re­cently formed Whit­sun­day Res­i­dents Against Dump­ing (WRAD) group.

Par­tic­i­pants are in­vited to meet at the north­ern la­goon car park at 10am for a march along the fore­shore to the mar­ket area. Guest speak­ers Jon Brodie and June Nor­man will join Mr Ir­win at the event.

WRAD spokesper­son Brit­tney Gre­gory said this was about tak­ing a stand to pro­tect the Great Bar­rier Reef and rais­ing aware­ness about fac­tors that could po­ten­tially jeop­ar­dise the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity’s way of life.
