THE GREAT BARRIER REEF


The great barrier reef

JUST A LITTLE

POEM

Beneath the breaking waves, A world within the depths of another.

like one of there own, and yet at the same time that they ignore you, the retreat in speculation of what you can do. Tranquillity beneath the rough above. A landscape filled with faded pinks, rosy reds, and fiery oranges. Descending into the trenches to float alongside of scaled walls and overgrown edges. At the openings in the coral, ascending above the scenery to glide above the beauty. light filtering down through the surface and illuminating the depths below, building a spectrum of blues that penetrate even the darkest regions. light pink and green coral fans sway gently below in the current so delicately that it seems to be pushed by the hands of Posiden himself. All the colours of the ocean lie below and it all... waits... to be discovered

FINALLY THE FACTS!!

  • Corals developed in southern Europe about 23 million years ago. By comparison, the Great Barrier Reef is relatively young at just 500,000 years old(THATS REAL OLD NOT YOUNG!) The current reef’s structure is much younger at least than 8,000 years old.

  • Most reef’s have formed on hard surfaces in the ocean, such as a base of an old reef that died during a period when sea level was lower, or the edge of a rocky island.

MORE FACTS

  • Coral reefs are warm, clear, shallow ocean habitats that are rich in life. The reef's massive structure is formed from coral polyps, tiny animals that live in colonies; when coral polyps die, they leave behind a hard, stony, branching structure made of limestone.

There are two types of coral, hard coral and soft coral. Hard corals (like brain coral and Elkhorn coral) have hard, limestone skeletons which form the basis of coral reefs. Soft corals (like sea fingers and sea whips) do not build reefs.
