Great Barrier Reef: Marine Diversity

Built by microscopic organisms commonly known as polyp coral, this barrier is home to the marine fauna that rivals in originality. When it is said that the Ocean is another world, it is in this expanse of 2900 reefs that this is true. Starfish of various colours, as well as the nekton that move in bands and create an exotic panorama. The clown fish or Nemo is the attraction of this reef, while in its anemone. It is also possible to admire the turtles.

 Great Barrier Reef: Ecological Richness

The barrier is undergoing severe coral bleaching, this due to climate change which reduces the surface area of one of the wonders of the marine world by half. For its marine diversity, the Great Barrier Reef was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. It also benefits from the protection of the marine park, which is a bulwark against activities that could damage its unique character. Indeed, the corals are used as decorative tools or participate in divinatory science rituals. For this reason, it is necessary to protect the reef, but also because the secrets it holds represent an important part of the understanding marine fauna and the formation of a certain biosphere.

 Great Barrier Reef: Tourism

The Great Barrier Reef offers to tourism, a night and beachfront whose Cosmo Rama reflects a fairy world. Coming to see the marine diversity, tourists offer themselves a memorable dive with the respect of the ecosystem whose authorities take care of the reminder. Yachting is not accepted at the edge of the barrier, but hotels line the beaches and illuminate the design of Oceania. With this, tourists flock to the island to the tune of 2 million per year.
