Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Global warming is endangering the future of the Great Barrier Reef with scientists warning that 35% of the reef has been killed as a result of mass coral bleaching. Even though Unesco voted not to put the Great Barrier Reef on the world 'danger list’ last year the latest findings have raised serious concerns about the future of this natural wonder. An expert from the James Cook University warned that this latest bleaching had already “changed the Great Barrier Reef forever”.

Australia has submitted a 35-year plan which aims to protect the reef and reduce pollution by 80% by 2025. However, skeptics and environmentalists warn that the reef could be destroyed beyond recognition in the next 100 years if more action is not taken.
