Great Barrier Reef downgraded from poor to very poor due to climate change

The Great Barrier Reef's outlook has been officially downgraded from poor to very poor because of drastic climate change. Rising sea temperatures due to human-driven global warming have become the biggest threat to the reef, a 5-year Australian government report states. Stretching more than 2,300km, the reef was once announced a World Heritage site in 1981 for its vast scientific and intrinsic importance.
