A trip to the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef

A couple of years ago I visited Queensland's beautiful Whitsundays.

I flew in a small plane over the area

Hill Inlet at low tide

and absolutely loved the view of Hill Inlet at low tide.

I marveled at the Great Barrier Reef from the air, remembering

 one of the greatest experiences of my life - snorkeling the Outer Reef.

But nearby is the site for a proposed huge extension of a coal mine and port.

I could hardly believe it!

And now the Reef is in trouble, with coral bleaching due to climate change.

Burning coal from Adani's mine will further increase global warming & the Great Barrier Reef will be destroyed.

The survival of the GBR or Adani's massive coal mine and port?

Many thousands of long-term tourism jobs or some short-term mining jobs?
