Underwater legend Val Taylor campaigns again for the Coral Sea

Apr 14, 2016In the media News

At the age of 80, underwater legend Valerie Taylor has returned to one of her early campaigns—the battle to protect the Coral Sea, one of the last places on Earth where coral reefs and ocean giants still thrive.

The Last Sea Treasure is a documentary about what Val Taylor says could be the greatest threat yet to the Coral Sea. In 2013, the Abbott Coalition Government suspended new marine parks that had been established by the Gillard Labor Government after a decade of scientific assessment and widespread public consultation. The Australian Marine Conservation Society says this has left places like the Coral Sea unprotected.
