Ove Hoegh-Guldberg: ‘We can save the Great Barrier Reef’
“We have a really good chance of preserving not all the coral we have today, but a substantial amount and I want people to understand that it’s not over, it’s just the beginning of a fight that we have to win.”
That’s the message from Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation’s chief scientist and leading authority on coral reef conservation this Earth Day, who says there is hope for the future of our Great Barrier Reef.
Professor Hoegh-Guldberg says that while there is a huge challenge ahead, there is still time to save coral reefs for the future.
The theme this Earth Day is: together we can restore our Earth.
The Great Barrier Reef Foundation is bringing together people and science to deliver more than 100 Reef-saving projects, as well as the world’s largest coral reefs program, to save the Great Barrier Reef and its marine life for future generations.
