Australian Divers’ 350 protest to save coral

26th October 2009

A group of creative scuba divers took their protest underwater off the coast of Port Douglas in hope of sending a clear message that the Great Barrier Reef desperately needs global leaders to reach consensus on a meaningful climate change treaty that will effectively cut carbon emissions to below 350 ppm before the year 2020.

How appropriate that the International Day of Climate Action on 24 Oct 09 is promoted by 350.org.

Visit the Great Barrier Reef and contribute towards the survival of 1 of the natural wonders of the world.  The best way to dive with the over 30 species of dolphins, 125 species of sharks and rays or discover clownfish is from a liveaboard.  October is coral spawning season so now would be the perfect time to experience the vibrant mass of marine life flourishing in this awe-inspiring undersea wonderland.
