Tell Bank of America: Don’t Fund Demolition of the Great Barrier Reef

coal_divers_edited-1Big Coal wants to build one of the world’s biggest coal ports smack in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef (yes, you read that right). It’s one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems, and home to endangered animals like the sea turtle.

If mega-corporation Adani has its way, three million cubic meters of irreplaceable seabed will be dredged up. Plus, the whole project will accelerate climate change – the last thing we need right now.

But Greenpeace and Rainforest Action Network have a plan. Adani can’t build the port without billions in funding, so activists are pressuring the major financial institutions to deny them. Some of the world’s biggest banks have already agreed, but Bank of America hasn’t yet.

Let’s make them change their minds: click here to sign the petition urging Bank of America not to finance this proposed eco-disaster. And keep your fingers crossed that Adani is forced to ditch their plan – I know I will be!

      Thanks a bunch!

      It seems like a longshot, but if enough banks deny funding it could put a serious damper on the coal industry’s plan. And if we citizens don’t try to protect the earth’s treasures, who will? Definitely not the government at this point.
