The Great Barrier Reef on the east coast of Australia is the most biologically dense feeding place on earth, and wildlife thrives in this magnificent and pristine coral sea. It is vast, magnificent, and a very unique place in the world.
The Great Barrier Reef is a tropical rainforest in the ocean. Corals replaced trees in rainforests, and fish and mollusks replaced birds and animals. Like rainforests, there are a variety of organisms and competition for survival.
In summer, female turtles crawl to the island to lay their eggs in the hot sand. After about eight weeks, thousands of hatchlings hatch from the sand and scramble to crawl into the sea. On their way to the sea, they are often preyed on by seabirds, crabs and mice.
Mammals such as dolphins and whales live in the deep waters off the reef. On the far side of the Great Barrier Reef, the most ferocious great white sharks and tiger sharks are always waiting for dolphins and sea turtles.
Coral reef communities vary in their depth, temperature, clarity, tranquility, and type of food depending on location, so thousands of species can find what they need to survive.
More than 1,400 species of fish, crustaceans and shellfish, anemones, worms, sponges and birds are estimated to make their homes in and around the Great Barrier Reef. Corals make up only 10% of that. The finely crushed shells and sand spit out by the sea cucumber sink to the bottom of the sea, filling the cracks in the coral base and playing a key role in protecting the reef.
The Great Barrier Reef is also a huge natural marine life museum. In the vast clear blue sea, dotted with colorful islands and reefs. In the places where the reefs cannot be submerged by water, thick soil layers have developed, and coconut trees and palms are very lush, creating a gorgeous tropical scenery.
Through the warm and clear sea water, you can see the dense undersea "forest" composed of more than 400 kinds of corals, which are colorful.
The fat sea cucumbers are wriggling, the red and yellow starfish are crawling, the grotesque butterflyfish and thick-lipped fish are weaving, and there are nearly 1-meter large lobsters, hundreds of kilograms of clam and stone fish lurking in the reefs,which add The Great Barrier Reef to life.
The Great Barrier Reef has many coral reefs. The color of the coral reefs, some are dark green, some are dark blue, some are white, and some yellow are mixed, connected in a piece, floating in the vast sea, extending to the end of the horizon.
The islands formed by these reefs are sandwiched with the coast, and the sea water forms a narrow sea waterway. People can take a boat along the waterway formed by the deep blue water and carefully appreciate the colorful and charming charm of the coral reefs.
As the sun sets in the west, the afterglow of the setting sun reflects on the sea, and the whole sea seems to be sprinkled with a layer of golden powder. The colorful coral reefs are even more beautiful and spectacular under the setting sun. The blue starfish on the reefs is like a distinctive mark marked by nature, which looks very conspicuous.
The vicinity of these coral reefs is also a paradise for diving enthusiasts. Bring diving equipment and go deep into the depths of the coral reefs, and you will discover more secrets of this deep blue sea. The blossoming large coral reefs bloomed bright red, as if they were big trees growing in the water. The little rain shrimps obviously regard this as a good place for a dinner party, and they all come here for a big meal.
