The Australian Minister for the Environment and Energy is the Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP, Boating companies, day trip companies

Dear Josh Frydenber
I am campaigning to save the coral reefs and how what we do in our everyday life is affecting them. I want your help to protect and conserve our reef for future generations. I believe it’s important for you to help because you can change laws about shipping zones. I want you to change the laws for boating, day trip and shipping companies as they are destroying the reef with pollution at the great barrier reef.

I want you to change the laws on shipping to increase the exclusion zones around the barrier reef to prevent ships from being able to damage the area.
My issue is that boating companies, day trip companies and shipping companies are destroying the reef with the pollution
Shipping zones are important because you can control oil spills and damage towards the reef.
Coral reefs are unique. Coral reefs generate a special underwater environment that can never be made in any other place on earth.
They are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals and are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups.
They are located in the deep sea, away from continental shelves, around oceanic islands and as atolls. The majority of these islands are of volcanic origin. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world's ocean surface, which is about half the area of France, yet they provide a home for at least 25% of all marine species, including fish, mollusks, worms, crustaceans, echinoderms, sponges, tunicates and other cnidarians.
If we extend shipping zones and exclude ships from certain zones, we will prolong the life of the reef and keep it alive for future generations. Limiting access of big ships to vulnerable areas will help keep the reef save from damage.
I think you should take action and help with this cause because a man with you authority has the power to protect and make a difference to the reef. Also I think it’s you responsibility to act because as a man with your authority it’s your duty to keep the reef safe. So Mr Frydenberg please help me save the great barrier reef.
Yours sincerely,
Jackson Donaldson

How this will help

If you sign my petition if enough people get behind this cause it will
encourage people with more authority change shipping zones so that the reef stays safe.

Josh Frydenberg should take action...

Josh Frydenberg should take action because he is the minister of Environment
and Energy. He is able change laws and give fines to shipping companies that cross the exclusion line

Names on a petition will influence the Minister because he will be able
to see that a lot of people are concerned about the reef and many people want it to stay alive.
