The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the 7 wonders of the natural world. Covering approximately the same area of Italy is the only living thing on earth visible from space. The climate change and particularly the global warming are seriously threatening the health of this living being which contains the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. Especially during the summer months, the raising of the water temperature can cause the phenomenon of corals bleaching, which depending on its intensity, can lead to death of massive portions of the reefs.
