"Whether you're the cafe worker in Cairns, the tour guide in Airlie Beach, the Scientist in Gladstone, or the Indigenous ranger in Bundaberg - protecting the Reef matters to Queenslanders. Because when you protect the Reef, you protect Queensland jobs."

- Special Envoy for the Great Barrier Reef, Senator Nita Green.

As Special Envoy for the Great Barrier Reef, Senator Green has the honourable role of fighting for the investment and protection of our most precious World Heritage Site. 

The Senator takes her role very seriously, meeting with a range of stakeholders up and down the Queensland coast. She gets out on the water when she can to see firsthand the incredible work that's being done to care for the Great Barrier Reef.

The Albanese Labor Government is investing a record $1.2 billion in the protection, management and restoration of the Great Barrier Reef, acknowleding not only the ecological and cultural importance but the 64,000 jobs the Reef supports.
