Calling all Residents of Planet Earth…It’s Lights Out for the Reef!

Earth Hour was founded by WWF in Sydney in 2007 and has now been embraced by 7,001 cities and 152 nations across the globe. And in 2014, Earth Hour will focus attention on one of the world’s most iconic and threatened places: Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

As always, Earth Hour only works if you’re part of it. So we’re launching a special Earth Hour television event with Channel Ten to reveal the true story of what’s happening to the Great Barrier Reef due to climate change and more. Then we’ll turn out our lights to make a stand for our reef.
