There are moves afoot to create a marine park over the Coral Sea to the east of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park because at this stage less than 1% of this area is protected.

Right now the federal government is considering the future of the Coral Sea within Australian waters and Daisy Barham is a Coral Sea Campaigner with the Australian Marine Conservation Society – she says they are bringing the campaign to Gladstone and Rockhampton with free film screenings tonight and tomorrow night.
