Josh Frydenberg Federal minister for environment and energy

My campaign is about saving the great barrier reef from extinction. The biggest threat to the reef is coral bleaching due to global warming, if we are to save the reef we must act now. I want you to change the forms of transport to electric instead of petrol driven including buses, cars and motorbikes. It is important that you support me because we need to lower the fossil fuels being let into the air, which is causing the ozone layer to increase then creates the climate to change.

The Great Barrier Reef is in great danger of becoming dead. With emissions sky rocketing into the air effecting our ozone layer is increasing, causing global warming, which is the main cause of coral bleaching on the reef. Almost 56% of the reef has been completely bleached. Another danger to the reef is tourists. Tourists travel to the great barrier reef to discover its natural beauty, people touch/.break and stand on the coral causing it to break and die. The sunscreen of a human’s skin also effects the water with chemicals. Last but not least commercial fishing. Nets that get caught on the reef are left in the water when they cannot retrieve it. This causing marine life to get entwined within the net, they also target predatory fish such as coral trout, the Coral trouts numbers have been decreasing upon the reef by 15% in the last year. With predatory fish disappearing a new predator will take its place causing the ecosystem to fall out of balance.
Taking action upon these issues can give the Great Barrier Reef a chance of surviving the upcoming years. With fossil fuels in the air being reduced greatly it will help the Great Barrier Reef,
The importance of you taking action upon this threat to the health of the reef can depend whether it will survive or die. The position you hold has the power to change.
