What were you doing last Saturday on World Heritage Day? We woke up to news that plans to dredge the Great Barrier Reef, our very own World Heritage site, are one step closer to happening. Right now, the government is considering a plan to dredge over 1 million cubic metres of healthy seagrass INSIDE the Reef World Heritage Area. They’ve given you just 10 days to voice your opinion - make it count >> http://buff.ly/1FZxK2d In the campaign to save our Reef, every step matters. We’ve knocked back ridiculous proposals before, and together, we can do it again. Act now >> http://buff.ly/1FZxK2d

Happy World Heritage Day! Take a moment to dive in and enjoy the beauty of our World Heritage Great Barrier Reef to celebrate today. As the world’s largest coral reef system and the only living thing visible from space, the outstanding value of the Great Barrier Reef to the planet was recognised with World Heritage listing in 1981. At the time of inscription, the evaluation stated "… if only one coral reef site in the world were to be chosen for the World Heritage List, the Great Barrier Reef is the site to be chosen". Worth protecting? Dive in and see for yourself:
If you’ve ever been diving in the Great Barrier Reef, you know why it’s a natural wonder revered all around the world.

The Maui dolphin of New Zealand is the world's smallest and most critically endangered dolphin. And it is on the brink of extinction. The most recent population estimate indicates that only about 55 adult dolphins remain and they are under severe threat from net fishing, oil exploration and drilling. Mexico took action to save the endangered vaquita by creating a 2-year net fishing ban over its entire habitat - let's urge the New Zealand government to do the same. #savethemauis >> http://buff.ly/1PUIhE3

A whopping 43% of Australian seabirds are found to have plastics in their gut. We can't let this go on. Ask the QLD government to implement a 'Cash for Containers' recycling scheme now >> http://buff.ly/1Ov87Nm

This is outrageous. An entire village in NSW's Hunter Valley could be relocated to make way for a massive coal mine expansion. We stand with the people of Bulga, NSW and Wonnarua traditional custodians in their fight against Rio Tinto's Warkworth coal mine. You can stand with them too at a rally in Martin Place, Sydney on Monday morning. Find the event details here: http://buff.ly/1FWNOSq

BAM! Waleed sticks it to the government, and to each and every one of us, on why we should care about Australia’s Renewable Energy Target in a hilarious piece on The Project. Watch and share this one! “Since Tony Abbott became PM, investment in renewables has dropped 88%, renewable jobs have fallen 15%, and renewable energy companies say we’re risking more than $10billion worth of existing investment... It’s the generations to come that will look back and see this for what it is - a wilful disregard for the future of this nation by the people we’ve elected to lead us.” Well said Waleed!

Did you know that 70% of seafood consumed in Australia comes from overseas? If you didn't know this, you're not alone. Weak seafood labelling laws in Australia mean that imported products can masquerade as Aussie seafood without you even knowing it. Today, we've joined forces with the seafood industry to demand action to ensure all seafood is properly labelled so that Aussies can support local and sustainable fish. Read our joint statement here: http://buff.ly/1auCmEE Join us and demand to know what fish you’re eating: http://buff.ly/1auCkNj
