Your tax dollars being spent to destroy the Great Barrier Reef?

For years, the Great Barrier Reef has inspired awe for its rich ecological diversity and the natural beauty of its coral reefs, which are home to over 134 species of sharks and rays. But while sharks once ruled in the reef, today it’s people that pose the greatest threat to this natural wonder’s many species, great and small. Fossil fuel corporations and parts of the Australian government are pushing plans to start massive coal mining in the country’s interior, and then dredge within the Reef to build new terminals for export.

The U.S. Export-Import Bank is prepared to finance the Alpha Coal Project, which will ship coal right through the Great Barrier Reef, with your tax dollars.

Tell U.S. Export-Import Bank Chairman Fred Hochberg to reject the Alpha Coal Project.
