Great Barrier Reef

-This is the worlds largest reef system.

- A natural threat would be overpopulation of fish taking any nutrients needed to support the reef.

- Water degradation caused by fossil fuels is causing parts of the reef to die.

-Australia needs to better monitor what goes in their water, and what condition it is in.
