Motions - Great Barrier Reef

Senator IAN MACDONALD (Queensland) (16:03): I, and also on behalf of Senator O'Sullivan, move:

That the Senate acknowledges that—

(a) on 5 July 2017, the World Heritage Committee unanimously endorsed Australia's Reef 2050 Plan and the progress made to implement this plan;

(b) the decision recognises Australia's significant efforts and investment in the early and effective implementation of the Reef 2050 Plan; and

(c) the World Heritage Committee has not put the Great Barrier Reef on its in-danger 'watchlist'.

And I note the good news about the UN's determination of that plan.
