A huge crowd of protesters have gathered outside the Gold Coast office of the Tourism Minister this morning calling for him to do more to protect the Great Barrier Reef.

Stop Adani has accused Moncrieff MP Steven Ciobo of propping up mining giants in Central Queensland, claiming burning coal is the leading contributor to climate change, the number one threat to coral reefs.

The group claims the recent budget allocation of $400 million to tackle water quality, crown-of-thorns starfish and breed more ‘resilient coral’ fails to tackle the root cause of coral bleaching.

It's also calling on Minister Ciobo to ensure taxpayer dollars aren't going to Adani.
