Virgin Australia joins forces with Greening Australia to save the Great Barrier Reef

Greening Australia and Virgin Australia today joined forces to launch a powerful new initiative to reduce soil erosion and help restore water quality on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Virgin Australia has entered into a three year partnership with Greening Australia, who today launched a new project, Reef Aid, which will reduce damage to the Reef as a result of soil erosion and subsequent poor water quality. Greening Australia has launched a public appeal to raise $10 million over the next three years for the first stage of the estimated $100 million major restoration project. The Australian Government Reef Trust will match private contributions dollar for dollar up to $2 million.
