ACCORDING to a study by James Cook (JCU) University in Australia, tourists are more worried about oil spills ruining the Great Barrier Reef than the possibility that it might lose its World Heritage status.
A team of researchers from JCU’s Business School, surveyed 980 visitors to Far North Queensland.
It found the tourists, mainly those from overseas, were very concerned about the impact of damage to the Reef either through climate change or from oil spills. Loss of the reef’s World Heritage was less of a concern than oil spills and climate change.
