Reefs and atolls of the Great Barrier Reef are seen off the coast of Australia. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest reef system in the world. The reef is also the largest object created by living things. The reef faces many environmental threats, including global climate change, pollution, overfishing, and accidents like the grounding of the Shen Neng 1.
