Surviving five near-death experiences in the course of 30 millenia, the Great Barrier Reef is more resilient than you think. However, scientists warn that with current stressors, survival is not guaranteed.
A new study by UNESCO projects that many reef systems will die by 2040 unless carbon emissions are reduced.
The reef is more damaged than initially believed.
The largest reef system in the world has been damaged beyond repair and can no longer be saved.
The amount of damage taken by the Great Barrier Reef from the back-to-back bleaching events has already reached new extreme, and becoming more and more irreversible.
Over two-thirds of Great Barrier Reef damaged by back-to-back bleaching events.
Most of the world's reefs are dying, so scientists are creating fake ones to spur rehabilitation.
Warmer ocean temperatures this year could cause another mass bleaching event at Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority have detected abnormally high sea surface temperatures on the UNESCO world heritage site, indicating that another massive bleaching event will soon hit the already dead reef.
Algae will soon take over the Great Barrier Reef, a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports revealed.
A survey conducted by the country's Environment Ministry revealed that 70 percent of the coral in the Sekisei lagoon area has already fallen victim to coral bleaching.
One of the world's most elusive whale surfaced for the first time on the great barrier reef. Passengers aboard a dive boat spotted the omura whale two weeks ago, but the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority just confirmed its identity yesterday.
The Great Barrier Reef is reportedly experiencing its worst damage via coral bleaching by far in history. The culprit is none other than the significant increase in water temperatures, which is record high as well. More than half of the coral population in the northern section has perished, while the central and southern centers have been reported to be in better health.
More than half of corals in northern Great Barrier Reef dead due to the 2016 bleaching event.
A truly remarkable annual event, corals in the Great Barrier Reef have a mass spawning at about the same time every year. It has been dubbed as the Great Barrier Reef's "annual mating season" since it is when almost all the corals around the area mass-reproduce.
