It’s been in danger for decades and deteriorating. The Morrison government is dishonest, incompetent and corrupt.

Countries that Australia lobbied and bribed to blocked the UNESCO ruling. >Bahrain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ethiopia, Hungary, Mali, Nigeria, Oman, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, St Kitts and Nevis, and Uganda. . >[Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley] also alleges that UNESCO “unfairly targeted” Australia over its climate policy. And St Kitts and Nevis are just tiny island nations. Sadly, both of your country will be devastated by climate change in the future with rising water levels.
