The Great Barrier Reef has lost more than half of their coral

                       

During the past 50 years, the coral vegetation in the Great Barrier Reef', the largest reef in the world, halved, reports WWF Australia. These corals are part of a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Also, the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF, for its acronym in English) reports that more than a thousand turtles dying were thrown to the beaches in Queensland state last year and a rare marine species are dying in fishing nets while the state administration is not able to limit industrial development that causes this.

The destruction of the corals will be the focus of the visit of the experts of the World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO planning to travel to Queensland next March.

The Committee has already expressed "extreme concern" about the development of the port of Gladstone, where a terminal is built to transport natural gas, and the dredging fund in the region of corals.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef in the world. Located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland in northeast Australia, and lies about 2,600 kilometers in length. It consists of nearly 3,000 reefs, representing 10% of the world's coral surface.
