The Great Barrier Reef stretches over more than 2300 kilometers and is the largest system of coral reefs in the world, which extends along the northeastern coast of Queensland, Australia , and is home to more than 400 types of coral, 1500 species of fish and 4000 types of mollusks. Some parts of the reefs remain in good condition, but many species, including dolphins, sharks, rays and turtles, are threatened. This World Heritage site is in “very bad” condition due to climate change, over-fishing and deforestation of the coastal zones.
Despite this, through a mix of right actions on the spot to improve the resilience of the system and global actions to tackle climate change in the most powerful and fast way possible, we can change the situation.
Let´s stop this. Together.
