Australia welcomes UN call on Great Barrier Reef

An aerial view of the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of the Whitsunday Islands, along the central coast of Australia's Queensland, pictured in November 2014Australia on Saturday welcomed a draft decision by the United Nations to keep the Great Barrier Reef off its endangered list, but environmentalists warned of ongoing risks to the natural wonder. Climate change, farming run-off and development have threatened the world’s biggest coral reef ecosystem, stoking fears the World Heritage Site could be formally listed as “in danger”. “This is a fair draft decision and we hope that it’s adopted,” Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told reporters in Perth, adding that Australia was very proud of the Great Barrier Reef and the efforts to protect it.
