Climate change biggest threat to Great Barrier Reef: GBRMPA
A report has revealed that Australia's Great Barrier Reef has been deteriorating despite conservation efforts and is expected to deteriorate further.
A five-yearly report released by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) said that the overall outlook of the site was poor and that climate change posed the biggest threat to the site, reported the BBC.
The report also added that poor quality of water from land-based run off, coastal development and fishing also present significant threat to the Great Barrier reef and a reduction in all kinds of threats at both local and regional levels was required to address the problem.
