It’s your reef.
Help fight for it.

The Great Barrier Reef is in crisis - and this Federal election will decide whether it survives and thrives. Will you act now and show your support?

Fight for the Reef is a partnership between the Australian Marine Conservation Society and WWF-Australia.

We’re working with people who love the Reef along the Queensland coast, across Australia and all over the world - who all want to see it protected.
