Secretive Great Barrier Reef Foundation reveals four founding leaders

Turnbull’s Grant

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation, the charity controversially granted $443 million by the Turnbull government to co-ordinate reef research, has finally bowed to pressure to reveal the names of its four founding members.

The foundation, which had just six full-time employees at the time of the grant’s announcement, is expected to collect at least $22.5 million of the funds in payments for its operations.
