Stop the Great Barrier Train Wreck
To Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Environment Minister Mark Butler and potential investors in Abbot Point :
As concerned citizens around the world, we urge you to protect the Great Barrier Reef by saying no to hugely damaging dredging and dumping. The Abbot Point port extension and other similar projects would endanger this World Heritage Site and its magnificent marine life and we call on you to oppose such projects.

The Great Barrier Reef is at risk of being dredged to make way for a mega coal project. But if the Australian Government steps in to block the plan, the dredging will be dropped and this world heritage site will be protected.
There are just weeks until a knife's edge Australian election, and Prime Minister Rudd has been looking for ways to sure up his green credentials. But major mining companies have local voters scared and the Prime Minister thinking twice. Rudd cares deeply about his international reputation and a huge global outcry can tip the balance and get him to save the Great Barrier Reef.
The decision will be made in days -- let’s stop this disastrous plan before the reef is rubbished. Sign the urgent petition now and send this to everyone before it is too late. When 1 million have signed we’ll take our message and the media right to the PM’s doorstep!
