The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 2,300km off the coast of Queensland, Australia. It supports a wide diversity of life and was selected as a World Heritage Site in 1981. A March 2016 report stated that coral bleaching was more widespread than previously thought, seriously affecting the northern parts of the reef as a result of warming ocean temperatures.

This is the video captured by Oleg Artemyev.

The local scenery on the ground of the coral reef of the Great Barrier Reef is as follows.
