Who are the Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef?

Founder of Earth Hour, @ANDYRIDLEY, is now turning his focus to a new movement — Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef (@CitizensGbr), a social movement which aims to unite people from around the world to combat the pressures to the planet’s biodiversity, including how to learn and care about the #GreatBarrierReef.  Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef will be the enabler and communicator of global and local action for the #GreatBarrierReef: providing a platform that allows people, innovators, businesses and communities to connect and mobilise as citizens, working together to secure the future of the reef and our planet.
