The Great Barrier Reef is the largest reef in the world, at 2,500 kilometers (1,553 miles). It is a complex of 2,900 reefs, and it is located of the coast of Queensland in Australia.

It brings in many tourists, although much of the reef is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Environmental ThreatsEdit

The Great Barrier Reef is in grave danger, and is currently overcoming many threats. Climate Change and overfishing are the biggest threats, but the smaller threats are oil spills and cyclones (or hurricanes). Another threat is the Crown-of-Thorns Starfish, which feeds on the coral at fast rates, and appear in large numbers.

The pollution there is also very dangerous, mostly coming from rivers leading to the oceans. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is undergoing many efforts to help the reef.
