Great Barrier Reef (*)

Overall Rating:Average Rating (3.50) based on 2 ratings

Located along the north-east coast of Australia, the Great Barrier Reef is the world's longest-spanning natural wonder (not including auroras) and is ironically the most fragile as it is made up of the skeletons of generations of marine polyps that lived and died just under the surface of the crystal clear sea. The Great Barrier Reef is 2,000-kilometers (1,242-miles) long and the first European to discover it was Capt. James Cook in 1770.

Reading this item reminds me of a great exchange in the movie, "Captain Ron."

Captain Ron: [telling how he lost his eye] Yeah, it happened when I went down off the coast of Australia.

Katherine Harvey: Your boat sank?

Captain Ron: No, no, no, no. Not my boat. My boss's boat. Yeah, we hit this reef. Huge son-of-a-bitch. Ran the whole coast.

Katherine Harvey: Wait. The Great Barrier Reef?

Captain Ron: You've heard of it, huh? Smart lady.

It is my understanding that the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on the planet. As a huge tourist draw, divers have taken their toll on the Reef, suggesting that it is no longer as impressive as it would be in its natural state.2
