The Australian government wants to give a $1bn loan to a toxic coal complex next to the Great Barrier Reef, threatening the home of sea turtles and more! Let’s stop the reef-killing deal with a massive call in Australian media:


Dear Friends,

They’re trying to put a toxic coal complex next to the magical Great Barrier Reef! It’s a crazy plan, but we’ve got a chance to stop it. 

The Australian government wants to give $1 billion to build a massive coal complex that could destroy the sea floor home of turtles and tropical fish. But first an independent panel must approve the loan, and they’ve never come under public pressure.  

It’s time to make them feel the heat. Let’s put this reef-killing deal in a global spotlight with a million person petition and a massive campaign in the Australian media — add your name:

The Reef is one of our planet’s natural wonders but it’s dying fast. Scientists say it’s literally being cooked to death by waters warmed by climate change. This coal complex is so gigantic it will make warming worse – for the reef and all of us!

The Australian government is desperate to create jobs, but reports show the coal complex will cost $680,000 in taxpayer money for each new job created. It’s an epically stupid plan.    

This is a do or die moment for the reef-wrecking coal complex: the company behind it is buried in debt, and without this loan their finances could fall apart. Let’s stop the reef-killing deal — add your voice now:
