Come to our screening of Chasing Coral in the back room of the 60L Green Building to raise funds and awareness for the AYCC and Seed's For the Love of the Reef campaign ($5 ticket).
The Great Barrier Reef is colourful, playful and teeming with life. For over 60,000 years Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have continued to protect their sacred Sea Country and have a vast knowledge of the Reef often shared through dreamtime stories. 70,000 people rely on a healthy #GreatBarrierReef for work; it’s a World Heritage Area and wonder of the world.
But right now, warming temperatures are cooking the coral, leaving the Reef and the critters that rely on it in a critical state.
In Chasing Coral a team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling adventure to document the disappearance of the world's coral reefs.
All funds raised through the screening and our For the Love of the Reef campaign will power grassroots tactics to stop the biggest coal and gas projects in the country.
The Morrison Government just caved to pressure from Adani and signed off on a crucial water plan. Can you call Labor Leader Bill Shorten and Shadow Environment Minister Tony Burke and ask them to commit to review Adani's approvals if Labor wins government in the upcoming federal election?
Adani need one crucial final approval from the Federal Government – their plan to manage precious groundwater. That could happen any day now. A new expert review of Adani's plan shows that it is drastically flawed and inadequate. We have to act fast to stop this approval.
