When the ‘green’ world is all green and green is all the world
This is a story about the changing environment of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the impact that this is having on the lives of many people.
It’s also about the role of a group of young people and a small number of individuals in the Great Barrier Islands who have been doing something about it.
“It’s a massive undertaking,” says Ben Mott, a researcher and former marine mammal biologist at the Great Cape Coral Marine Park Authority (GCMA).
“But it’s just a small minority of people that are really really pushing the boundaries.” “
When I asked him how many people are doing this work, he answered: “I don’t know.” “

When I asked him how many people are doing this work, he answered: “I don’t know.”
In 2016, I asked Mott and the GCMA about the number of people involved.
They said they did not know, but said they were working with a small group of people.
Mott told me that the GCMAs team consisted of a few dozen people and that most of the people who do the work were young people from the islands.
“I think the average age of our group is 20,” he said.
But that wasn’t the whole story.
When you consider the large number of young adults in the area, and the age difference between them, it’s clear that this has an impact on how much of an impact young people are having.
According to a 2016 survey conducted by the GCMSA and the University of Queensland, there are around 500 people between the ages of 20 and 24 living in the Reefs Great Barrier.
One of those people is Ben Motto, who is 30 years old.
He’s a marine biologist who lives on the Great Lakes island of New Britain and works as a research assistant at the GCMCA.
I asked him about the young people he works with.
Ben Motto said he is a small part of the Great Reef Marine Park Association, which is the main group working with young people on reef conservation.
The group is mostly from the Great Ocean Road (GOR), a small community off the north coast of New South Wales.
GOR is part of an ambitious plan to increase the size of the reef from a few thousand square kilometres to as many as 15 million square kilometres.
It is being done with a number of organisations including the Great Coastal Regional Development Authority (GCRDA), the Great Coral Marine Management Authority (CCMA), the Coral Reef Marine Reserve Authority (CMRRA), and the Queensland Government’s Great Reef Program.
There are currently some 500 people in the GOR and the CCRRA, but Motto estimates there are perhaps another 10,000 in the Coral Sea.
At one point in 2016, there were around 10,500 people living in GOR.
Now, that number has dropped to around 2,500.
And Motto says that has been due to the number and diversity of young individuals in his group.
In the last three years, the number who are aged between 20 and 25 has grown from about 20 to over 60.
Among them is Ben McLeod, a young woman from the Northern Territory who is a member of the Goro Island Marine Park Community, which Motto is also part of.
She says that there are many people in her group who have already started their careers, but that there is also a younger generation of people who are also working on the reef.
“[They are] really enthusiastic and they want to do something,” she says.
While she is passionate about her work, she says there are some challenges she is also struggling with.
She says the young group is often the most difficult for her to get to know.
So much so, that she and her friends have been called the “Goro Island Generation”.
“They’re not the kids I grew up with, and they’re not all my friends, but they are my peers, and so it’s really hard,” she said.
“You feel like you have to really know them to get their attention, because they’re all really quiet and kind of quiet, so you have no idea who they are.
That makes it really difficult to get them to engage in conversations about the reef.”
There have been other instances of young Australians trying to do things on the Reef.
During the 2017-18 school year, a number were trying to get involved with the Reef Conservation Movement, which aims to protect the reef and its ecosystems.
Last year, two of those young people, Luke and Jessica, were arrested for breaching an anti-harassment order.
Luke and Jessica were released from custody on bail after the Supreme Court rejected their request for a bail hearing, ruling that
