    Australia argues against ‘endangered’ Barrier Reef status

    CANBERRA (AP) – Australia’s environment minister said yesterday her government will lobby against United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adding the Great Barrier Reef to a list of endangered World Heritage sites, arguing that criticisms of government inaction on climate change were outdated.

    Officials from the cultural agency and the International Union for Conservation of Nature released a report on Monday warning that without “ambitious, rapid and sustained” climate action, the world’s largest coral reef is in peril.

    More details in Wednesday’s Borneo Bulletin.
