The Great Barrier Reef is facing an imminent threat from a 72 metre vessel which is currently threading its way through the treacherous shoals of this highly endangered environment, flanked by flotillas of carbon-spewing boats.
Alarmingly, the multinational organisation in charge of the vessel has a history of causing environmental damage to sensitive reefs. The boat which is larger than Greg Norman's yacht, powered by a BHP Sulzer V12 diesel motor and features a hull strong enough to smash through ice, is unlikely to be stopped by any of the fragile old-growth coral polyps that it may encounter.
