— “We didn't expect to see this level of destruction to the Great Barrier Reef for another 30 years. In the north, I saw hundreds of reefs in which literally two-thirds of the reefs were dying and are now dead.”
- Terry Hughes, Ph.D., Prof. and Dir. of Australia's Government-Funded Center for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University, Townsville City, QLD, Australia

- Brett Monroe Garner, Photographer, Greenpeace Int'l.
