Great Barrier Reef faces irreversible impacts of climate change: report

A government-commissioned report by the Australian Academy of Science warns that the Great Barrier Reef’s (GBR) deterioration due to climate change could reach irreversible levels within decades. The report, based on various emissions scenarios, indicates that by 2050, the world’s largest coral reef might face irreparable damage, regardless of global carbon emission stabilization. The study involved over 80 experts and was produced for the Reef 2050 Plan Independent Expert Panel. It emphasizes the need for immediate action, including improved reef management through a comprehensive review, incorporation of Indigenous land management knowledge, and standardized ecological data collection. The report underscores the importance of transparent communication with the public to prepare for the reef’s changing conditions due to increasing environmental challenges.
