The Prime Minister and the Minister for the Environment and Energy have given $444 million dollars of public money to the private Great Barrier Reef Foundation without due process. A full 6 years of funding was provided to an organisation with 6 full-time staff and no capability to administer and manage this amount of funding. The money was not sought by the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. It was not tendered, not advertised, did not involve Departmental staff and paid, up-front, in total, with no strings attached. This is financial recklessness on a grand scale. If you believe the funds should be returned to the Australian public until due process can be followed, then please sign our petition.
