Celebration of 50th Anniversary - Ellison Reef

STARTS: Saturday, 14 October 2017 - 1.59AM

Exactly 50 years ago, diver Eddie Hegerl and friends gathered the scientific evidence that compelled the Queensland Government to refuse an application to mine Ellison Reef. This set the legal precedent for protecting the whole Great Barrier Reef and creating the world’s largest marine park.

Friends of Ninney Rise are celebrating the anniversary of saving Ellison Reef with two events on Saturday 14 October:

'A boat trip to Ellison Reef' from Mission Beach in the morning. $175; and

'Reflections', a forum with Iain McCalman as moderator at Ninney Rise in the afternoon. $25.

A number of high profile scientists will be revisiting Ellison Reef including Eddie Hegerl, Dr John (Charlie) Veron and Prof Iain McCalman.

In the afternoon a forum  will be held on the verandas of Ninney Rise:  'Reflections - Celebrating the Past and Influencing the Future' with Iain as the moderator.

We recommend booking early as there are limited seats for both the boat trip and forum. 

For more information and to secure a booking please visit our website www.ninneyrise.com

We do hope you are able to attend the celebration of this historic event.

Please don't hesitate to contact FoNR on 0414 402315 for advice on accommodation or any other enquiries
