Do you love snorkelling on the Reef? Perhaps you have been scuba diving or have explored areas in a glass bottomed boat or, better still, in a semi-submersible 'submarine'? Some reef trips include underwater observatories, connected to substantial anchored platforms.
There are plenty of opportunities for non swimmers, as well as for those more energetic amongst us, to venture into the amazing underwater world of corals, reef fish, sea turtles and plants.
An adventurous day out is often made more interesting and enjoyable with illustrated talks about the reef and its inhabitants by marine biologists - as well as a delicious lunch and, sometimes, soothing live music on the trip home. A day to remember!
There has been considerable publicity lately (from mid 2016) about the damage to corals living in the Northern section of the Great Barrier Reef, caused by being immersed in hotter than normal water temperatures for extended periods. This has resulted in what is called 'coral bleaching', a phenomenon caused by the death of tiny marine algae, which live in the tissues of the corals, providing them with food and giving them their typical colourful appearance.
When these algae (zooxanthellae) are no longer providing such essential support the corals (their white skeletons on display) may die unless water temperatures drop and the algae are able to return to their hosts. If water temperatures continue to increase there is real concern that the glorious beauty of this special area will no longer exist.
