I work for the Australian Marine Conservation Society on the Fight for the Reef campaign in Airlie Beach. Fight for the Reef is a joint campaign between the Australian Marine Conservation Society and the World Wildlife Fund. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the industrialisation occurring on the Great Barrier Reef’s coastline. My role as the Great Barrier Reef community organiser is to mobilise the tourism industry and community. I’m also an active organiser for the local group Whitsunday Residents Against Dumping. My role is to raise awareness about dredging, dumping and shipping threats to the Great Barrier Reef, campaign for a ban on dumping in the World Heritage Waters, mobilise and support the community, and maintain a strong, powerful media campaign to increase public awareness.
