How is the great barrier reef being protected?

    Project Catalyst is working on new farming methods that will help reduce pesticide and fertilizer pollution.  Both of these can have very negative effects on water quality around the Reef.  So far they have reduced nutrient pollution by 60%, herbicide pollution by 95%, and heavy soil runoff by 20%.  The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is also working on stopping poor fishing practices by commercial fisheries, as well as setting up Marine Protection Areas – essentially, protected places in the reef.
