A tribute to The (Dying) Great Barrier Reef

Picture Source : Google
Although everyone knew that one day it's gonna happen , due to the exponentially deterring global climate. But, the news of the The Great Barrier Reef came out as a shock to the world. The acidification of the ocean and the climate change have killed this glorious creation of mother nature.

I have never been to the reef, but it was on my bucket list. The reason I chose was the spectacular colors of the coral reefs and one of the most famous dive site for scuba divers. But, unfortunately, now I can never strike this of off my bucket list.

The Great Barrier Reef was the world's largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 2,300 kilometers (1,400 mi) over an area of approximately 344,400 square kilometers (133,000 sq mi). The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland, Australia.It can be seen even from outer space and is the world's biggest single structure made by living organisms.It supports a wide diversity of life and was selected as a World Heritage Site in 1981.

Let us submerge ourselves in these breath-taking photographs, taken by the lucky ones, who were fortunate to experience this surreal beauty. And take a pledge, to protect the environment and promise ourselves that we will not let, this kind of tragedy happen to any other natural monuments.

  1. I wish at least the multi billion dollar travel and tourism industry would do something to protect these gorgeous places by lobbying hard for environment friendly laws... We are losing many places like the great barrier reef...
