Outrage continues to mount as the Olympic barge designated for Paris 2024 wreaks havoc on Tahiti’s precious coral reef. In a surprising move, authorities undertook an unannounced expedition, ignoring promises of transparency and excluding environmental associations.
Witnesses report that the barge, designed for a 3-day surf competition during the 2024 Olympic Games, repeatedly collided with the delicate reef during high tide, contradicting initial plans. This triggered widespread local and international protests against the potential ecological catastrophe.
An online petition is gaining momentum with the aim to halt construction on Teahupo’o’s reef. Organisers are encouraging people to join the wave of change—sign and share the petition, tagging relevant authorities and using #SaveTeahupoo.
These collective efforts have already made waves, approaching a goal of 200k signatures.
As the world unites to protect this iconic reef, now is the time to ensure Teahupo’o’s preservation—your voice matters! #SaveTeahupoo
