Underwater legend Val Taylor campaigns again for Coral Sea

7325506-3x2-340x227

At age 80, underwater legend Valerie Taylor returned to one of her early campaigns—battle to protect Coral Sea, one of the last places on Earth where coral reefs and ocean giants still thrive. The Last Sea Treasure is a documentary about what Val Taylor says could be the greatest threat yet to the Coral Sea. In 2013, the Abbott Coalition Government suspended new marine parks that had been established by the Gillard Labor Government after a decade of scientific assessment and widespread public consultation. The Australian Marine Conservation Society says this has left places like the Coral Sea unprotected.

Wasn’t it interesting, first episode, David Attenborough on Great Barrier Reef, to hear that the reef only got started 10,000 years ago, when sea level rose just a few metres?  http://tinyurl.com/zpoonjo
