Snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef


数百万匹の小さな生き物達がサンゴが創り出す世界で日々生活をしています。明るい色の魚がサンゴ礁の間を泳ぎ抜け、透明なエビが潮に身をまかせて漂い、白い砂の海底でヒトデが水面を眺めている… そんなサンゴ礁の世界が作り出す日常を見てみませんか?



自然美… その様な言葉だけでは表現出来ないほど美しいグレートバリアリーフでは、多くの生物が寄り添いあって生活をしています。400種類のサンゴ、1,500種類の魚と4,000種類の軟体生物が世界でも有数の生態系を成しています。また、グレートバリアリーフが宇宙からも見えるその大きさは、2500のサンゴ礁と900を超える島々が創り出しています。
