The Great Barrier Reef – level 3

14-05-2020 15:00

The Great Barrier Reef, Australia’s natural heritage, is one of the most beautiful areas on the planet, but pollution and global warming are threatening it.

Australia promised to restore the health of the Great Barrier Reef, establishing a ban on the dumping of dredged material from all capital dredging projects near the reef.

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee has voted to maintain pressure on Australia and the World Wildlife Fund in Australia released stunning footage filmed by a small camera carefully fitted onto a green turtle.

Difficult words: heritage (something important), dredged (extracted from the bottom of the sea), stunning (amazing).
