protect the great barrier reef by giving it rights

I want real environmental protection because I and everybody else depend on a healthy environment; so does the economy (esp here in Cairns)
By declaring the Great Barrier Reef to be an entity that possesses rights, it will have standing to sue those that damage those rights. A Guardian can be the Reef's human face to represent it in litigation. This will result in remedies in the form of damages payouts to the Guardian who can then use the money to restore the health to the damaged portion and protect the community's eco tourism future, of which I am a part.
