•Shortfall of funding to the Great Barrier Reef•
A recent report shows that there is a lack of funding by the current government to help the Great Barrier Reef get back to full health. Currently the reef is dying due to warming ocean temperatures, increased acidity as a result of increased carbon emissions, and poor water quality due to heightened runoff from farming. If we want to preserve our reef we must support leaders who stand for preserving the natural world.
Here is a photo I took off an island in Thailand. This is one of the local Green Sea Turtles who is struggling to find food amongst a sea floor which is filled with bleached coral. Such a beautiful bay from above was such a dismal sight below the surface. If we don't see some big positive decision making at the political level, it is only a matter of time before our sea life suffers the same consequences.
