|You have just arrived at your first geographic
destination, The Great
Barrier Reef. You have been dropped off by the helicopter on a very
small island. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest structure on Earth built
entirely by animals. The Great Barrier Reef is actually made up of about
2,800 smaller reefs.
||This natural wonder is larger than Ireland
and Britain combined. It contains thousands of islands, most of which contain
rainforests. Like the rainforests of Australia, the reefs have drastically
declined due to human action.
|The reef supports a wide range of marine life.
You decide to go scuba
diving to see for yourself. The water is warm and crystal clear. The
climate is warm and you are loving it! You've never seen so many amazing
fish and sea creatures in your life!
