Great Barrier Reef shouldn’t go on World Heritage danger list: UN Report


According to a United Nations draft report, the Great Barrier Reef should not go on a World Heritage danger list.

However, the report states that Australia must carry out commitments to protect the reef, including restoring the quality of water  and restricting new port developments in the vicinity.

As far as the final decision on its status is concerned, it will be made at the World Heritage Committee meeting in Germany next month. Many environmentalists and conservationists have warned that the outlook for the reef is quite “poor”.
