Leonardo DiCaprio – Reef hero
Leonardo DiCaprio tells of Reef ‘devastation’:
“Since my very first dive in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia 20 years ago to the dive I got to do in the very same location just two years ago, I’ve witnessed environmental devastation firsthand.
“What once had looked like an endless underwater utopia is now riddled with bleached coral reefs and massive dead zones.”
Legend Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst
Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst told ABC Radio Adelaide today that he’s concerned to see the Australian Prime Minister reassuring ‘Texas oil men’ that fossil fuel remains on the agenda.
Rob also expressed concerns that tankers travel through the Great Barrier Reef and into the Port of Gladstone.

Graham Nash from supergroup Cosby, Stills and Nash is the latest celebrity to speak out against the threats to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
He told Noise 11:
” … that decision he [Prime Minister Tony Abbott] made on Australia’s five megaports is devastating. In Australia with the amount of sun that your country gets are you kidding me that we are wasting all that energy”.
