The Great Barrier
Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. More than 2 million
people travel to see it each year. It is worth more than $6 billion to the
Australian economy and has recently been estimated to be worth more than $50
billion internationally by Deloitte Access Economics. However, despite all of
this it is in great danger. As the largest living organism on Earth, the Reef
needs protection and investment – now more than ever.
The National Trust look after everything from historic houses and gardens, to coastline and castles, nature reserves and villages, across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our purpose is to care for nature, beauty and history for everyone, ensuring as many people as possible can enjoy and benefit from our places and spaces, not just now, but for generations to come.
