Could election results shape the future of the Great Barrier Reef?

Both major political parties have pledged certain funds to save the Great Barrier Reef but have they pledged enough?

Prior to the election, the Liberal Party committed around 210 million dollars to tackle issues in the reef.

The Coalition will also divert around 1 billion dollars over ten years from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.

Whereas, the Labor Party has committed around 400 million dollars to the Reef.

So how could the results of the election shape the future of the Great Barrier Reef?

We were joined by Jon Brodie, Chief Research Officer with the Centre for Tropical Water & Aquatic Ecosystem Research at James Cook University, to find out more.
