The Australian Governmentannounced $100 million additional funding and a blueprint for protecting the Great Barrier Reef

Australia’s Prime Minister, the Hon Tony Abbott MP, visited Queensland last week to launch the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan, the overarching framework for protecting and preserving the Great Barrier Reef for the next 35 years. The Prime Minister also announced an additional $100 million to tackle key challenges facing the Reef, ensuring greater protection of this World Heritage-listed icon.

The Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan brings together Australia’s leading expertise in science and environmental management. It outlines the actions that the government, industry and communities will take to ensure the Great Barrier Reef remains healthy and resilient for generations to come.

The Great Barrier Reef is an incredibly diverse and rich environment - a maze of 3000 coral reefs and 1050 islands stretching for more than 2300 kilometres. It is already regarded as being among the best managed marine parks in the world and we are determined to keep it that way. Read more about our efforts to protect the Great Barrier Reef here.
