How Climate Change Transformed the Great Barrier Reef, a Place I Love
WHEN I WAS 7 my family took a boat trip to see the Great Barrier Reef. We could see through the glass bottom of the ship. In the shallow waters, there were silver creatures, stingrays playing in the sand. But as we went deeper we saw colourful fish and coral. Unbeknown to me at the time, many of that coral would die off in my lifetime. It wasn’t until I was much older that I would find out why and return several times to see that it had slowly become bleached.
