This is why Australia needs to give the Great Barrier Reef immediate attention.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has listed the Great Barrier Reef as a world heritage site. It is the world’s largest coral reef system. A site of remarkable beauty, the Great Barrier Reef is located on the northeast coast of Australia. Most importantly, it is famous as the home for 400 different types of coral. In addition, it is an ecosystem for 1500 species of fish and 4000 types of molluscs.

Climate change has been shattering the healthy state of the reef for the past few years. Climate change has particularly caused mass bleaching of corals in the years 2016, 2017 and 2020. Early this year, the Reef water quality report card showed that the quality of life and the overall environment along the Great Barrier Reef’s coastline has consistently been in poor health.

In a recent report, The World Heritage committee has urged Australia to take immediate action to combat climate change and protect the Great Barrier Reef from slipping into the ”danger” list. According to the report, Australia’s national treasure, the Great reef which has been listed as a world heritage site for over 40 years, is now threatened.

On the bright side, while the report shows some quality progress, there is a long way to meet the targets. The Great Barrier Reef is not only a world heritage site but also the world’s largest coral reef system.

But the Australian government has been advised to immediately turn their attention towards measures that can protect the Great Barrier Reef so that it does not slip into the ”danger” list. Watch the video for more insights, as the world awaits an updated 2050 Reef Plan, due later this year.
