Save Our Coral Reefs
Coral reefs: the base of our marine ecosystems, supporters of our fisheries, tourism industry, and shoreline protection. Unfortunately, such a valuable part of the marine ecosystem is up against harmful fishing practices, coastal construction, marine pollution, warming seas, and ocean acidification. With 60% of our coral reefs expected to be dead and gone in the next 30 years, our reefs face an uncertain future.
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. There’s nowhere else on Earth quite like it. Beautiful, diverse, irreplaceable and under threat – some of the brightest minds around the world are focused on decoding the secrets of the reef and uncovering the pressures that threaten it.
Each day, new solutions and new answers are being discovered. Working together, everyone's actions, big and small, are vital to the Reef's future.
