Recent reports by CNN say that a large pumice stone the size of Manhattan is floating towards the Great Barrier Reef and could possibly bring life back to the reef. These pumice stones can carry new marine life that are important to the reef’s well being. The pumice stone was in result of a volcanic eruption 130 feet below sea level. The Great Barrier Reef has been becoming bleached because of climate change, overfishing, and pollution. According to National Geographic “Half of the Great Barrier Reef has been bleached to death since 2016.” In addition 1625 species of fish and 1400 coral reef species have died according to gbrmpa.gov. If this pumice stone reaches the Great Barrier Reef the reef could flourish and may start to come back.
