Sydney Action to Save the Reef

Sydneysiders went snorkelling in Hyde Park fountain today in protest of the planned expansion of coal ports on the Great Barrier Reef.

 

The protest coincides with the release of a report from the Australian and Queensland governments in response to a request by UNESCO (the United Nation’s world heritage agency) to take measures to protect the reef.
