Saving Toondah Harbour and a worrying reef study

Sunday, 18 July 2021 - 11:30am to 12:00pm

Toondah Harbour on the coast near Brisbane is a globally significant wetland and a vital stopover for shorebirds such as the critically endangered Eastern Curlew. It's under threat from a property development and campaigners are calling for the project to be stopped. We speak to campaigner Andrew Hunter from Birdlife Australia. Find out more at:

Staying in Queensland, we also speak to Dr Zoe Richards from Curtin University, about an alarming new reef study. Although parts of the reef are recovering after mass coral bleaching, she's found 60 species (16%) of coral have disappeared from around Lizard Island. We chat about what that means for a possible listing of the Great Barrier Reef as a World Heritage site "in danger". Read more about the study:
