Some yeah. Scientists have figured out how to build a crystalline structure to help coral grow a bit.

A lot of bleeching and crown and thorn starfish though.

It's not native to the reef, it was brought there in balast water from south east Asia (I think)

Are corals and other species in the Great Barrier Reef found elsewhere in the world and how are those reefs doing?

Reefs around the Phillipines and Indonesia are at a different longitude but are not very far away.

Yes, yes.

The whole teachers grooming and hitting on teenage boys is okay, just fine, because they had no sex.

LOL at DAC for dragging this turd up. :lol:
