ABSTRACT
The author offers a reaction to an article published in the August 16, 2011 issue of "The Australian Financial Review" titled "Barrier Reef talks in Bahamas cause stir." The article reported that the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority spent 41,000 Australian dollars for an accommodation for 45 people to attend a 5-day workshop at the Colonial Hilton Nassau in the Bahamas. For the author, the report was a damning exposure of the arrogance and profligacy of Australian "public servants."
