Abstract

[Extract] In the state of Queensland, Australia, hard-won environmental protections are under threat.

In April this year, Queensland elected a new government that is pro-development and pro-mining. These activities have been burgeoning over the past few years, prompting the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to investigate whether the Great Barrier Reef should be included on the List of World Heritage in Danger (see http://whc.unesco.org/en/documents/117104).
