The Great Barrier Reef (which has held World Heritage status since 1981) - one of the world’s natural wonders - is among Australia’s most beloved tourist landmarks. A report from Unesco, the UN’s scientific and cultural body had said that not enough was being done to protect the reef from climate change or to meet water quality targets. But Unesco’s World Heritage Committee has decided to give Australia more time after recent mass bleachings of coral and other other problems accelerating its deterioration. What do you think LiveTribers? Is enough being done to protect the Great Barrier Reef?
