Dear Steven Miles, Minister for The Great Barrier Reef 161 Waterworks Road Ashgrove QLD 4060

We believe that the endangerment of The Great Barrier Reef is a very important issue. We also believe that you are in a position to take action to address this issue.

This action is needed to help The Great Barrier Reef survive. Key things such as
pollution and overfishing is why The Great Barrier Reef has become increasingly threatened. 80% of the land opposite the reef is farmland. This poses a threat as the use of fertilizers and pesticides highly used in this area. After heavy rainfall these poisonous chemicals will run off into The Great Barrier Reef causing many other problems such as coral bleaching, which then leads to the destruction of habitats endangering the species that live in the area.

Overfishing has impacted the reefs ecosystem. This then affects how every different species survives in the reef, putting them all at risk. The biggest risk overfishing has is the domino effect. This means if one species is affected the food chain will be altered, then influencing other species.

Being in your position Steven Miles you are more than able to help with this issue due to your recent promotion to minister of the reef. Your support and service on this issue will save one of the seven Natural Wonders of the world. The tourism industry on the Great Barrier Reef provides a massive 5-6 billion per year. Without this it would be a great loss to the economy. You could be a part of this and will provide many Austrians with great relief knowing that you care and are willing to assist. We want you to take action by campaigning for the reef, use advertisements and push new laws for the protection of the reef.

The Australian Government will be judged on its ability to undertake and resolve the issue at The Great Barrier Reef. The eyes of the world are watching! This is your chance to step up as the new minister and show the people that you care! Obviously it’s time that action is taken to put this issue to rest. We ask for your full support and commitment. This will ensure that you are serious and ready to take action. We also request that you provide advertisements so that the rest of the World and Australia are aware. If you read this letter hopefully I have brought to your attention how we Australians feel about the Great Barrier Reef.

Signed,

Jackson Small Small
