It’s the world's largest reef system,

The adorable, agile animals have plenty of wisdom,

There lies a bleached reef,

Millions of sealife lives beneath.


Australia is home to many remarkable sites,

But this one is quite bright,

It is home to an incredible diversity of species,

Schools of clownfish swim with ease.


The Great Barrier Reef is visible from outer space,

It is truly an amazing place,

This incredible ecosystem is 2,300 kilometres long,

There are many endangered animals, such as the dugong.


Sadly, the coral population slowly drifts away,

A once vibrant ecosystem is now grey,

Let’s stop standing here in disbelief,

Instead let’s help save the Great Barrier Reef.
