Is The Great Barrier Reef Dead

Is the Great Barrier Reef dead?

There are reports of the death of the Great Barrier Reef

However the reports of the death of the Great Barrier Reef are greatly exaggerated.

The Great Barrier Reef is 1,400-mile network of reefs. In an orbitory it wrote that the Great Barrier Reef had passed away in 2016 after a long illness by Rowan Jacobsen in an article for Outside magazine. According to Jacobsen, the reef’s demise followed the “most catastrophic bleaching event in its history, from which it would never recover”.

Social Media users rushed to mourn the supposed passing of the Great Barrier Reef. The ecosystem lies off the east coast of Australia and is the largest living entity on the planet.

But scientists have stressed that while the Great Barrier Reef, like most coral structures around the world, is under severe stress, it hasn’t quite snuffed it yet. So the Great Barrier Reef isnt dead- yet

“This is a fatalistic, doomsday approach to climate change that isn’t going to engage anyone and misinforms the public,” said Kim Cobb, a coral reef expert at Georgia Tech. “There will be reefs in 2050, including portions of the Great Barrier Reef, I’m pretty confident of that. I’m put off by pieces that say we are doomed.”

Although almost a quarter of the Great Barrier Reef coral has died this because of global bleaching. 

Bleaching occurs when prolonged high temperatures cause coral to expel their symbiotic algae, turning them into snow-white skeletons. Corals can recover from this but some simply die. Divers on the Great Barrier Reef have spotted large areas with degraded coral, and even reported smell of rotting and dying coral.

While almost all parts of the Great Barrier Reef suffered bleaching, not all have died. Isnt it time for humans to stop destroying the very world we live in.
