Support the petition against dumping waste on the Reef
Site, following the Australian Government’s announcement in March that dumping within the smaller GBR Marine
Park will be banned. In the past, the majority of waste has been dumped just outside the Marine Park, but within the World Heritage Site, smothering coral and seagrass beds. WWF also calls for the ban to be enacted before the UNESCO World Heritage Committee meets in June to consider adding the Reef to the List of World Heritage in Danger, to avoid this downgrading. Add your name to the 131,000 who have signed the petition to stop dumping on the Reef, and share WWF’s call to action using #SOSreef.
