MetadataShow full item record
Australia’s under-pressure Great Barrier Reef is an asset worth Aus$56 billion (US$42 billion) and as an ecosystem and economic driver is “too big to fail,” a study said Monday.

Using economic modelling, it said the reef was worth Aus$29 billion to tourism, supporting 64,000 jobs.
