Australia’s federal environment minister “has already approved a plan to dredge 3m cubic metres, equivalent to 5m tonnes, of seabed in order to expand [Queensland’s] Abbot Point for an increase in coal exports. A proposal to dump the sediment within the [Great Barrier] reef’s marine park has also been approved.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/sep/02/abbot-point-port-developers-ditch-great-barrier-reef-dumping)
