Into the deep

The Australian Women's Weekly - - Monthly round-Up -

Queens­land marine bi­ol­o­gist Johnny Gaskell has dis­cov­ered a “blue hole” in the Great Bar­rier Reef. He spotted the patch of blue (a smaller ver­sion of the Great Blue Hole off the coast of Belize) on Google Maps and sailed to find it. The shel­tered mi­cro­cli­mate pro­tects a trea­sure trove of marine species. Johnny be­lieves his team may be the first to have ever dived there and they may be the last as he has sworn to keep the blue hole’s location a se­cret.
