I do not know if things have gotten bad enough to declare an emergency but if things have gotten that bad it might be in the country's best interest to declare a national emergency. The reef is very beneficial to the country and the communities it is near. They should protect this treasure of their community.
The slow death of the Great Barrier Reef is a national emergency in Austrailia and they need to devote resources to stopping the chemicals that are causing the bleaching of and are slowly killing the Great Barrier Reef. This is an enviromental feature that needs more protection and resources devoted to it.
Yes, the Australian government should consider what's happening to the Great Barrier Reef to be a national emergency. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's most magnificent natural features. Not only would losing the reef be economically disastrous to Australia and its people, it would more importantly be an ecological disaster.
Yes, the Australian Government should declare it a national emergency because we cannot destroy the planet. We must do everything we can to prevent our actions from killing animals and the ecosystem. We are meant to aid the planet, not destroy it. Australia must act quickly to make a change.
