Great Barrier Reef is losing it’s Coral

October 14, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

According to Singularity Blog the reef has lost half it’s coral over the last 27 years!  Some of it is due to warming but also hurtful is the Crown of thorns starfish.  When we were in the Drawaqa Island area we did what everyone does there – see the Mantarays!  While our friend Chris was snorkeling he made some great underwater photos that day and discovered a Crown of thorns that he was able to dislodge and our boatman Bette made quick work of.  We hope that Fiji doesn’t lose its valuable coral!
