“The Sun” and “New York Post” have published the announcement that the Great Barrier Reef is dead at the age of nearly 25 million years. With a location in the Coral Sea along Queensland’s coastline in northeastern Australia, it is also the largest coral reef on Earth and is filled with living organisms.
The geoffor, which is larger than the United Kingdom, is a victim of coral bleaching caused by environmental impacts.
The Great Barrier Reef can be seen from outer space and extends over 1,400 miles above an area of nearly 133,000 square miles. The natural icon is composed of 900 islands and more than 2,900 cliffs. It is home to 30 different species of dolphins and whales, 1,625 fish species and 3,000 mollusks.
Environmental journalist, Rowan Jacobsen, for the first time called the Great Barrier Reef “dead” after a rather long disease with “25 million years”. Composed of billions of very small organisms, some of them have ever been considered “the world’s largest living creatures” on the planet.
Now the best candidate for “the world’s greatest living creature” is honey for almost two and a half miles. The fungus can be found across the range from the Blue Mountains of Oregon.
Announced as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, the Great Barrier Reef was the subject of research by AIMS scientists for the study of coral bleaching. When coral loses endosymbotic algae through the loss or expulsion of algae pigmentation, the process is called coral bleaching.
The reason for this is believed to be a change in the climate. The ocean became warmer and this made the corals elimination of algae and become desolate. Corals then could not get the animal’s nutrients that it usually receives from the algae.
The Great Barrier Reef The authority of the marine park is in the middle of the next step to assess the impact of whitening. The research team found that at least 22 percent of coral coral is dead due to whitening. They note that it is “the worst case for bleaching the record”.
In particular, their research reveals that 85 per cent of mortality occurred within the 370-mile barrier ridge span between the northern part of the Gushter Island and the tip of Cape York. Part of the scientific community has long been concerned about this eventuality.
Charles Veron, a scientist from the Australian Institute of Marine Science, taught on this subject from time to time in 2009, in fact. Since October last year, he announced that the entire northern section of the sin has already been “changed” and that “it looks like a war zone”.
Is this the end?
The director of the Marine Park Directorate, Reef Director said. Just a few days ago: “Mass whitening continues for the second year in a row on the Great Barrier Reef. ” Is this really the end of the entire Great Barrier Reef? On the official AIMS website, he noted that “not all bleeding corals will die.
” Wahenfeld added that this highlights the importance of taking action on climate change. He concluded: “Anyone on the water can help protect the ridge following the zoning rules and the responses of the responsible riffs and leaving the fish that eat plants to help control the algae and allow the coral larvae to settle down and create new colonies. “
