Hi, I am Ted the turtle, and I live in the Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef is the words largest cor reef system.
The Great Barrier Reef is made up of 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands. It stretches for over 2,300 kilometres, over an area of approximately 344,000 square kilometres.
The Great Barrier Reef is located off the coast of Queensland, Australia
As well as turtles, like myself, you will also find lots of other organisms such as coral polyps, whales, dolphins, sea snakes and more than 1,500 species of fish (amazingly, 10% of the world’s fish species) inhabiting the Great Barrier Reef.
Threats to the health and survival of The Great Barrier Reef include climate change, mass coral bleaching, the Crown Thorn Starfish and pollution.
To help reduce damage to The Great Barrier Reef, and maybe even reverse the damage already done, we need to take action to reduce pollution and stop climate change + stop the Crown Thorn Starfish.
