The Great Barrier Reef Is Under Major Threat | Dr Claire StevensThe long-term viability of coral reefs, including the Great Barrier Reef, is threatened by ocean warming and ocean acidification - both of which are a result of carbon emissions from human activities.Corals depend on a unique kind of microalgae for their survival. The microalgae provide coral with nutrients and with the colour pigment that makes them brightly coloured. This symbiotic relationship fails when water temperatures rise, causing coral to lose their colour, or become ‘bleached’. Education is key in protecting our environment and Australian ecosystems. Lets work together to protect these precious resources.
