UNESCO Wants Australia To Act Urgently To Save Great Barrier Reef; Andrew Norman; Tech Times

Australia – Great Barrier Reef

The slow destruction of the world’s largest coral reef has raised concern among environmentalists as they attempt to save the Great Barrier Reef from doom.

Greenhouse effect, climate change, and the rise in water temperature caused mass bleaching of the coral in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. While some scientists believe that there is no chance at all to save the reef, others are optimistic. UNESCO believes that the Great Barrier Reef can be saved and urged the Australian government to make greater efforts to save the world heritage site.

On Saturday, June 3, UNESCO pushed for accelerated efforts from Australia to save the Great Barrier Reef. The international agency also stated that the current pace at which the program was moving, would be ineffective in fulfilling the long-term targets that are etched out for saving the reef.
