But, very sadly it should be mentioned, that in recent years the reef has been damaged severely by the human deeds lead to global warming. The warm sea water damages the reef and its creatures severely and outlook of it is also becoming poor to very poor. So, UNESCO world heritage committee is also considering on adding this into the list of sites that are “in danger” as its mass bleaching events have increased. Apart from the climate change, run off from the land, coastal development and different kinds of fishing are some major reasons for the downgrading of the reef. Reefs are extremely sensitive to the sea warming and specially effect to the colorful reefs and tend to bleached. So as nature lovers, we should reduce the deeds which lead to global warming and help to all the conservation works to protect this amazing reef for the future.
