Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef
“The actions of people across the planet will define the future of the Great Barrier Reef.”
Andy Ridley – Founder Earth Hour & CEO Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef
We all have a responsibility to protect our natural heritage. The threats to the Great Barrier Reef are real and immediate, but if we respond now with action not apathy, there is hope.
We’re mobilising a global network of Citizens, committed to taking action for the Reef and the planet. Our message to the world is that the Reef is still beautiful, inspiring and most importantly, worth fighting for.
Help us build a new social movement and become a Citizen of the Great Barrier Reef. By claiming your citizenship, you’re not only helping the Reef – you’re securing the future of the planet.Visit the website
