Just two years ago, the Australian and Queensland state governments released the Reef 2050 Plan, officials’ long-term sustainability plan detailing how to best preserve the reef and ensure that it “continues to improve on its outstanding universal values.” The message was relatively upbeat: The iconic reef was very much not dead, and in fact could get better and better as a “natural wonder” in the decades to come.But now, with back-to-back mass bleaching events in 2016 and 2017 causing almost half of the Great Barrier Reef’s corals to die, some members of the Reef 2050 advisory committee, a group of scientists and experts tasked with implementing the government’s plan, have raised doubts about its feasibility. At a recent committee meeting, two experts, both hailing from government science agencies, said that “improving the natural heritage values of the reef was no longer possible,” reported The Guardian.The experts, who spoke to the paper on the condition of anonymity, said the plan’s aim should be tweaked to something “more achievable.” The reef will “inevitably” be damaged because of global warming, they said, but perhaps its “ecological function” could be maintained. “The concept of ‘maintaining ecological function’ refers to the balance of ecological processes necessary for the reef ecosystem as a whole to persist, but perhaps in a different form, noting the composition and structure may differ from what is currently seen today,” a spokesperson for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, where one of the two experts is based, told The Guardian. Earlier this month, another group of reef experts ― the Great Barrier Reef Independent Expert Panel, an advisory group also tasked with implementing the Reef 2050 plan ― echoed that sentiment.In a communiqué published on May 5, the group said that “coral bleaching since early 2016 has changed the Reef fundamentally.”“There is great concern about the future of the Reef, and the communities and businesses that depend on it,” the statement read, “but hope still remains for maintaining ecological function over the coming decades.”The Great Barrier Reef has myriad functions, including providing a habitat for hundreds of fish and other species, protecting coastlines and acting as a draw for tourism. According to a 2013 report by consultancy firm Deloitte Access Economics, the reef contributes almost $4 billion to the Australian economy each year and supports almost 70,000 jobs.
