28m

Finweek English Edition - - CONTEXT -

Be­tween 2001 and 2013, 28m cu­bic me­tres of dredge spoil was dumped into the wa­ters of the Great Bar­rier Reef World Her­itage Site. Cur­rent plans could al­low dump­ing of up to an es­ti­mated 39m cu­bic me­tres more. Dredged up to cre­ate new ship­ping chan­nels, the dumped spoil can smother corals and sea­grass, which is food for threat­ened dugongs and marine tur­tles.
