Coral reefs are the rainforests of the seas and Australia's Great Barrier Reef is the Amazon of the Seas. Over 2,300 kms long, it is the largest living thing on earth and home to 600 species of coral, 6 species of turtles, 215 species of birds, 17 species of sea snakes and more than 1,500 species of fish. Like the Amazon it is being destroyed by a combination of of human beings and global warming with over a third of it's coral now destroyed.
Three-quarters of the world’s coral species can be found on the Reef thriving on a massive colony of tiny polyps, trillions of living creatures we collectively call coral which also absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. Rising sea temperatures are bleaching (killing the coral) rather like cutting down trees, and destroying this marine habitat and the animals with it including the Phytoplankton, the small animals which absorb more than half the world's carbon dioxide and produce more than half its oxygen. Humans are as dependent on Reef as the animals that live there, so the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest marine rainforest.
Our aquamarine and white bracelet with its gold and pink bands reminds us of what its like to look into the waters around the reef and see this marine continent of colour, life and beauty.
