Australia failing to protect the Great Barrier Reef from shipping disasters

Michael Slezak reports in The Guardian (22.11.16) that 'the government is failing to protect the reef from the effects of shipping disasters, according to environmental lawyers, who say inaction to secure remediation funds will become a bigger problem as shipping traffic increases.'

'The issue could cause a problem for Australia when it reports to the Unesco world heritage committee within the next two weeks, on the state of the reef and how it is acting to protect it.'
