Australians spend 379 million dollars to save the Reef

Great Barrier Reef is badly damaged by our own kind. Now Australian government plans to preserve it, and is willing to spend as much as it needs.

This decision will help to save Reef from further bleaching, loss of biodiversity that exists inside and near it, agricultural runoff.

Meanwhile, critics believe that scientists have to come back to their previous ideas which already showed some results and not to experiment with fresh strategies.

It stretches onto 2 300 km. Which means it is bigger than Holland, UK, and Switzerland altogether. There are hundreds and thousands different corals, fish, jellyfish, rays, dolphins, even sharks and whales. They all are extinct species as well as Great Barrier Reef itself.

Reef has already started bleaching, destroying, and slowly dying. The government in Australia has recently announced that they are giving 500 million dollars which are 379 million US dollars to save the Reef.

According to the minister of Energy and Environment, Josh Frydenberg, it is a unique decision. This investment is the largest in history spend by the government of reef conservation.

Jon Brodie from the Australian University of James Cook, thinks it is a good sign that Australia is willing to protect reef by any cost. He says it is what was lacking for many years. It means a commitment to the almost ruined ecosystem.

This money, according to the government, will restore the quality of water, improve the fertilizer management, and farming practices nearby. They will be used to save reef from attacks of starfish that destroy corals and monitor the health of the reef. Part of the money will go to researchers and engagement of the community.
