Our Mission to Protect Australia's Great Barrier Reef

Operation Reef Defence

Operation Reef Defence
Stopping Adani's mega-mine from destroying the Great Barrier Reef

During July and August 2018, our flagship, the M/Y Steve Irwin, travelled up the east coast of Australia to Abbot Point to oppose the Carmichael coal mine, rail link and port.


Our position was made clear: we will not trade the Great Barrier Reef for one of the world's biggest and most destructive coal mines.

A report from the Climate Council released in October 2018 reveals the urgent need for Australia to kick its coal habit to protect the Great Barrier Reef. The report highlights the chilling finding that even if global warming is limited to 1.5°, coral reefs could lose a further 70-90% of cover. This would effectively eliminate the Great Barrier Reef as we know it. 

For the protection of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Adani's proposed Carmichael coal mine must be stopped.
