Indian mining giant Adani wants to build Australia’s biggest coal port at Abbot Point on the Great Barrier Reef coastline. The port expansion will require massive development, including dredging and dumping, and poses a huge risk to the Reef’s already vulnerable ecosystem.
When Adani built a coal port and power plant in Mundra, India, the damage was astonishing. It destroyed the environment that had sustained local fishing and farming businesses for generations.
