Great Bar­rier Reef ‘not dy­ing’

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

The Great Bar­rier Reef is “not dy­ing”, Aus­tralia in­sisted on Fri­day as it up­dated UNESCO on ef­forts to pro­tect the nat­u­ral won­der while sci­en­tists blasted a lack of ur­gency in deal­ing with cli­mate change. The gi­ant ecosys­tem — a ma­jor tourist at­trac­tion — is un­der pres­sure from cli­mate change which led to its worst bleach­ing event this year that dev­as­tated swathes of coral.
