UNESCO verdict on the Reef

The status of the GBR has avoided being downgraded by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee but the future of the ecological treasure remains subject to close scrutiny. As expected, the committee meeting in the German city of Bonn confirmed on Wednesday the findings of its draft report released last month. That draft recommended Australia report back on its progress in implementing its Reef2050 plan by December 1 next year, but decided against listing the reef as being in danger.’ (Peter Hannam, Brisbane Times, 1.7.15).
