The Great Barrier Reef - level 2
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most beautiful areas on the planet. The World Wildlife Fund tries to protect the reef.
The people in the organisation wanted to make people care about the reef, so they took a small camera and put it on a turtle. The turtle then swam in the ocean and filmed a beautiful video. The organisation then showed the video to the world ahead of an important decision.
Peopled decided that Australia must improve protection of the Great Barrier Reef. In eighteen months, Australia will tell the world how it is doing.
Difficult words: reef (rock and coral just below the surface of the sea), fund (an organisation), decision (the action of deciding something – making your mind about how to do something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
