My name is Imogen Zethoven and for the last 20 years I’ve been working to protect our beautiful oceans and the Great Barrier Reef.
I’m delighted to let you know I’m joining the Fight for the Reef team in the role of Campaign Director for the Australian Marine Conservation Society after the sad loss of my close friend Felicity Wishart.
Felicity worked with all of our incredible supporters, like you, every day to make this campaign what it is today and we will honour her by finishing what she started.
To hear more about my story watch my welcome video:
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s truly iconic natural places.It’s beautiful, valuable and right now, it’s under threat.
I’ll be working alongside our campaign partners WWF Australia, to stop industrialisation ruining the Reef.
Over the next few months there are some really important decisions that will be made: the environmental approval for the expansion of the Abbot Point coal terminal, the potential use of taxpayer money to prop up the project and the proposed mega port in Cairns.
If these projects go ahead it will mean increased dredging and shipping on our Reef.
Together we must work with local communities, Australians, and millions of people from around the world to protect the Reef’s future.
As Flic would say, it’s your Reef, but you’re going to have to fight for it. And we will.
I can’t wait to work with you all,
I SUPPORT PROTECTING THE REEF
