Reef 2050 Plan: Action Speaks Louder Than Words Fight For Our Reef

For release Friday 20 July 2018

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) has called on the government to take immediate action on climate change in the light of todays updated Reef 2050 Plan.

The updated Plan, released today, recognises that climate change is the most serious and increasing threat to the Reef and acknowledges the need to implement the Paris Agreement, limiting the global average temperature rise to 1.5oC above pre-industrial levels.

However, while the language on climate change in the updated Plan is notably stronger, it fails to acknowledge the inadequacy of the Federal Governments emissions reduction target, and the proposed actions to achieve this target.

Recognising the threat to the Reef from climate change is a positive step but the next urgent step is for the government to actually tackle the problem, said Imogen Zethoven, Fight For Our Reef Campaign Director for AMCS.

The Great Barrier Reef urgently needs a revised Plan to 2050 that explains how Australia will cut its carbon pollution to give the Reef a future. Right now, we are not pulling our weight in the global effort to cut carbon pollution.

There is still time to protect the Reef from dangerous climate change if we act now. If we do nothing, the outlook, based on current climate change projections, is a catastrophic decline. The Reef is too important to Australia and to the world to lose.

Australias current emissions reduction target is 26-28% but a target in line with the science to limit Reef damage would be 45-65% by 2030, as recommended by the Climate Change Authority -and zero net emissions well before 2050.

UNESCOs World Heritage Committee recently met in Bahrain to reiterate the importance of all countries undertaking the most ambitious implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement.

The Federal Government has a responsibility to protect the Reef, yet our representatives continue to support the expansion of the fossil fuel industry and Adanis massive coal mine, said Ms Zethoven.

Coal and gas are causing climate change and thats damaging the Reef. We need to end this dependency and switch to 100% renewable energy.

Incoming! Osprey clutching lively Oz prey tyto tony

One of three resident Ospreys near entrance to Town Common wings in with mightily reluctant Gar. Fish fought on vigorously for several minutes.

Two other recent catches of Gar may indicate change of preferred catch, seasonal fish availability, or immature bird's switch from thicker-bodied fish species caught by parents.
Since all three birds have similar breastbands I've found it impossible to tell male from female from immature. Bad luck for the Gar if it was victim to just one of three predators.
