I am going to Australia at Christmas time and hope to see it. I pray that we save it because as nature goes, so does the brute animal called the human.

I visited the reef in the early nineties. It was so beautiful then!! I've been concerned since I first heard about it's bleaching.

I scuba dove in Great barrier Reef in 2001. Amazing experience. It needs to be saved.

Too few people care enough to save it, how sad to say there's no global warming�

I have lived in Western Australia for about 10 years but never got to see the reef which is on the opposite coast, (it took me four and a quarter days to hitch hike across Australia when I first visited it in 1964) Including a trip acrooss the Nullarbor of 1000 miles. I hope to move to Belize soon and they have the second largest reef in the world. A friend of mine here in Panama, who is a marine expert says that corals in Panama are suffering the same fate ie bleaching

Very horribly sad. I hope my children and many generations of my family and everyone's thereafter will be able to see this extraordinary environment of sea animals for a long time to come. Kudos to everyone who is taking action to save it!

Is it dying because of us humans or is it natural?

I believe there is Global warming but it is a natural consequence and nothing to do with the puny efforts of mankind. All man's efforts to reduce global warming are just costing mankind millions of Dollars for a very limited effect on the problem.

I live so close, The Great Barrier Reef can be snorkelled off shore from Bowen Beaches. It is beautiful and has been damaged for decades from Trawlers, Fishing nets, dredging at Abbott Point and running off of toxic chemicals from farms. There is also the rubbish that people leave behind on our beaches and what is tossed overboard from boats. Please, if you walk along any beach, take something with you to collect litter left behind by ignorant people. You will be amazed at the amount of trash people leave behind! In fact do this wherever you walk, help keep our environment clear of litter. Teach your children to do the same.
