Dangerous Cloud Hangs over Great Barrier Reef
Cenozoic. If the Committee listed the reef as in danger, it would be giving up its significant lever to prompt Australia to step up, and thereby jeopardising the future World Heritage Area status of one of our most precious national treasures. However, given the efforts of the Queensland and Australian governments to resolve these issues, it would be advisable for unesco to continue its patient prodding of the Queensland and Australian governments to improve the response to their concerns. Although the coastline parallel to the GreatBarrier Reef has been settled by Europeans for less than 200 years, these scientists believe that the Reef has been shrinking by 20every 100 years.
The situation is made worse if there is limited cloud cover and a high level of UV radiation blasts the coral.

Dangerous Cloud Hangs over Great Barrier Reef In Australia around the coral reefs, water clarity has significantly diminished over the past 50 years.
There are also a number of supporting initiatives to take place outlined in the plan to help create a framework to improve land use practices which will in turn improve water quality. To many, this outcome would be a major blow to Australias reputation as an environmentally responsible nation, with clear ramifications for its iconic tourist industry, worth around A6 billion dollars each year. Retrieved 11 November 2006. "Patterns in the distribution of coral communities across the central Great Barrier Reef". "Understanding Tourist Use of the Great Barrier Reef: The Whitsundays Visitor" (PDF). 6, this reef structure is composed of and built by billions of tiny organisms, known as coral polyps. It is thought that the poor water quality is due to increased light and oxygen competition from algae. A combination of zoning, management plans, permits, education and incentives (such as eco-tourism certification) are employed in the effort to conserve the reef. Many corals, such as the reef-building ones, have symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) that provide them with additional food from photosynthesis.
