'Environment is our economy': Tourism wakes up to a reef in peril

There are 1 comment on the The Age story from Jul 7, 2018, titled 'Environment is our economy': Tourism wakes up to a reef in peril. In it, The Age reports that:

Take a journey out to the Great Barrier Reef these days and it's highly likely your tour will include stunningly iridescent corals and a wondrous assortment of fish, turtles and even the odd shark that you came to see. Travel even a couple of kilometres away, as this correspondent did recently, and it's just as likely the visitor will see a reef in ruins: plate corals matted in thick algae, brittle staghorn corals littering the seabed, and only the grazing fish - though still luminescent parrot fish and other species - nibbling at the greenery.
