Trivia Quiz: Test Your Knowledge About News of Relief For Coral Reef

Let’s start the quiz

Coral reefs are invertebrate animals and occupy only 0.1% of the area of the ocean. Despite this, about 25 percent of marine life depends on these coral reefs. The Australian Government has decided to allocate 500 million Australian dollars to save the Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest and famous for coral reefs. Declared World Heritage by UNESCO, the Great Barrier Reef has long been damaged by pollution, coral bleaching, and attacks from the StarFish named Crown of Thorns. This money will be used to increase the quality of seawater, control starfish, increase the number of corals and increase underwater monitoring. These occur at lower depths because there is a lack of sunlight and oxygen at greater depths. So, take this quiz and increase your knowledge about coral reef.
