Stranger Things' Dacre Montgomery Calls On People To Help The Great Barrier Reef

Everyone was introduced to Dacre Montgomery in season two of Stranger Things as the bad boy rebel. But in the latest instalment, he became the really, really bad guy.

Thankfully, in real life he's a bit of a legend and he's calling on people to help save the Great Barrier Reef.

CITIZEN REEF is a campaign aimed at gaining the world's largest LIVING organism, The Great Barrier Reef, Australian citizenship.

This would grant her the same rights and protections as every other Australian citizen, including freedom from inhumane treatment, the highest standard of health and most importantly - THE RIGHT TO LIFE.

You may not know it but the world's largest living organism, The Great Barrier Reef, has been looking out for you your entire life.

She's been protecting your coastlines, preventing tidal waves and tropical storms from washing away your cities.

She's regulating the carbon dioxide levels of the ocean to combat climate change and keep your air and beaches clean.

She's created a nursery to more than 10 percent of the planet's fish species, helping to maintain the world's fish populations.

She's even contributing to the Australian economy by generating $6.4 billion every year, supporting over 64,000 jobs and holding a modest net worth of $56 billion - that's about twice the worth of Aussie bazillionaire, Rupert Murdoch.

But despite her massive contribution to Australia, she's still denied the one basic right of every Australian citizen - the right to life.

But seeing as we don't have the power to grant her citizenship on our own, we're calling for power in numbers. More specifically your numbers.

While we work with the Australian Marine Conservation Society and the Oceanic Preservation Society, along with a team of CITIZEN REEF ambassadors, all you need you to do is click here to help get The Great Barrier Reef the recognition she deserves.

Every vote of support you contribute will directly notify the Australian Government to let them know we are a unified voice who believe this living, breathing Aussie icon, should become a living, breathing Aussie citizen.
