I wonder if you have dived on the GBR recently.
These guys are posting
pictures in real time.
There is a general concensus from many including many of tourist industry and users that the demise of the GBR has been way overhyped by those raising money
as it was years ago with the crown of thorns scare.
I am not saying everything is perfect, we need to take care to properly manage the GBR. And teh GRB has a very well regulated and managed system under the control of the GBR marine
parks authority. (GBRMPA)
You will note it seems the guardian.com
only shows the GBR as a disaster zone and all is gloom and doom. Not one positive picture. What does that say to those of you on the other side of the world. The GBR is finished.
So I would not take its articles as the truth, the whole truth.
