  •   Printed and authorised by Senator Christine Milne, Parliament House Canberra ACT 2600.      Page 1 of 2  The old parties know that offshore dumping damages the Reef.   Senate estimates revealed that draft reports from the Great  Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority suggest that the damage  could be even worse that initially expected.  Instead of standing  up for the people who depend on a healthy Reef, the old parties  have given into the mining companies, who want to dump  dredge spoil so that building new coal ports is quicker and  cheaper.    Dumping of port dredging spoil offshore in the Great Barrier  Reef world heritage area seriously threatens the health of  marine life and corals including by degrading water quality,  mobilising legacy pollutants, including heavy metals found in  ports and harbours, and smothering flora and fauna.       > BANNING OFFSHORE DUMPING Our plan will ban offshore dumping:  • No new permits for offshore dumping to be issued.    • No new permits for dredging to be issued, unless there is a  plan to dispose of the dredge onshore.    • Some maintenance dredging will need to continue; however  any further permits need to be reviewed and informed by  the best available science to minimise impacts, ideally by  reducing dredging and finding onshore solutions.  > WHY DUMPING IS A PROBLEM? At last update, since 2000, the dumping of 22 million cubic  metres of dredge spoil has been approved.     It was revealed in senate estimates last week that new draft  research by Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, using 3D  modelling and factoring in deep ocean currents, indicates that  dumped dredge spoil travels further than previously thought.
