Australia's Great Barrier Reef is to reefs what the Amazon is to rainforests, a massive colony of tiny polyps, trillions of living creatures we collectively call coral. Three-quarters of the world’s coral species can be found on the Reef. Sadly more than half the reef has died since 2016 so the prospects for this, the world's largest living organism, look bleak. 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 continent of colour, life and beauty.
Coral reefs are the rainforests of the seas - massive habitats for animals supporting more than a quarter of all marine life and well as the hundreds of millions of people who rely on reefs around the world. But unlike rainforests, coral reefs are animals not plants, made up of millions of tiny little polyps. They are a critical to the oceanic food chain supporting the phytoplankten, the small animals which absorb more than half the world's carbon dioxide and produce more than half its oxygen. Climate Change is one of their greatest threats as it heats up the sea which then bleaches the coral and kills it - in plain english, we are cooking our reefs.
