The Great Barrier Reef has grown into the largest living entity in the world, stretching over 1,600 miles (2,600km) along Australias Eastern Coast. Making it not only a massive attraction for Autralian tourists, but a true world wonder that can be seen from outer space. This majestic habitat is home to thousands of didfrent species of plants and animals including a handful of protected species such as dugongs and sea turtles.
Since 1985, the Great Barrier Reef has lost more than half of its corals with two-thirds of the loss occurring from 1998, due to drastic climate change and pollution. Many hearts and soulds have gone into the potection of the reef over the past few decades but now the reef is in immediate danger.
