The Great Barrier Reef, an oceanic jewel located in the eastern coast of Queensland, Australia, is the largest system of coral reefs found on Earth. It is a geological feature that is half alive (corals, sponges, shellfish, fish, etc.) and half inanimate (calcium carbonate rocky reefs). How in the world this geologic and biologic feature formed, and how is it continually maintained? Was this Great Barrier Reef always there, since billions of years ago? Why is it so amazingly long (about 1,400 miles) and why is it considered the largest biologically created structure in the world? Why should we humans care about the Great Barrier Reef? Is it dying, or is it still growing? Investigate about the Great Barrier Reef and write an essay about them. The questions provided above are to motivate you to investigate about this topic; you do not need to answer them one by one. The essay must be at least three paragraphs long, and each paragraph must contain at least five sentences (you can write more than three paragraphs and more than five sentences per paragraph if you wish to do so). The content of your essay must be written entirely in your OWN words. Use in-text citations in parenthesis, APA style, if you paraphrase information from other authors. Paraphrasing is not copy-pasting or copying and changing a few words from other authors’ writings – it is writing it in your OWN words to explain the authors’ writings. Only when necessary, you can quote, but these quotes do not count towards the last tally of the number of paragraphs and sentences required from your OWN writing. You must cite at least three references you used to investigate about this topic at the end of your essay (use APA style).
