Photographer's Note

The Australian Government is attempting to de-list two of our national treasures from UNESCO World Heritage Listing. The first is 74,000 square hectares of Tasmanian old-growth forest. The second is our shining jewel, the Great Barrier Reef. UNESCO makes its decision this week.

I have never done this before, but am asking those of you who are concerned by this to visit this site, and sign the petition to save our natural treasures:

Greenpeace Australia Pacific Save The Reef

Victor Hugo once chillingly wrote of us humans:

"Nothing makes him hesitate; no bulk, no obstruction, no consideration of splendid material, no majesty of nature. If the immensities of nature are within his reach he batters them down. This side of God which can be ruined, tempts him; and he undertakes to assault immensity, carrying his hammer in his hand. The future will, perhaps witness the demolition of the Alps...The child breaking his plaything seems to be seeking its soul. Man seems to be looking for the soul of the earth".

Thank you.
