Some of you may commemorate with a full day of celebrations, while others might just have a brief moment today for a minute of calm reflection and pride for being an Australian. But for all Australians, today is filled with special meaning. While Australia Day marks the anniversary of the First Fleet’s arrival, we celebrate something valuable and significant. We celebrate the nation and people we are today. Australia has many stereotypes, most including our hard working but easy going nature and our beautiful and plentiful environment.
There are many tourist attractions spanning throughout the Great Barrier Reef, such as cruising the Michaelmas Cay. Michaelmas Cay is the largest coral area located in Cairns, Australia. Unlike various other cays, the Michaelmas Cay is always able to maintain a water level that is above the coral no matter the tide. This unique fact about Michaelmas Cay exemplifies
The dive explores the submerged remains of two volcanic tuff cones rising from the waters that keep the tides at bay. The back side of the eastern cone is a sloping wall covered in coral that acts as a cleaning station for yellowtail surgeonfish, yellowtail snapper, and schools of reef fish. Eels, rays, and white-tipped reef fish also come to the area to feed. During the descent, sea lions and turtles join you for the journey. Mosquera Located between Baltra and North Seymour Islands, the Mosquera islet has two dive sites to explore.
It is renown for its proud and respectful attitude towards long occupation by Aboriginal people and their traditions. Holds history of European settlement and heavily influenced by british culture (political and legal traditions), American commercial and media. Its famous for their ethnically diverse population, location in the Asia Pacific and patriotism for the ‘Aussie’ culture. Australia is also a country of extremes, with the largest land areas yet one of the lowest population densities. Renowned for the outback yet over 90% of the citizens reside in coastal urban
They break down dead biological matter and waste products and convert them into useable energy; returning important materials to the environment. Decomposers are a particular important feature in the Great Barrier Reef considering the heavy bio-load. Main decomposers inside the reef include bacteria, sea cucumbers, some species of snails, crabs and bristle worms. Bacteria sis not only vital for the Great Barrier Reef’s food web, but is also said by scientists that it could be the key to keeping the coral healthy and able to withstand the impacts of global warming. Dr Tracy Ainsworth stated “it is very likely that these microorganisms play a vital role in the capacity of coral to recovering from bouts of bleaching caused by rising temperatures.” Corals rely on these good bacteria’s crucially although we don’t yet understand these microbe’s ell enough to know how they influence coral survival, which is vital in maintaining the food web of the Great Barrier Reef.
Under his rule he successfully established a constitution for the Empire which resulted in a long era of political stability and with the help of his lieutenant, established a capital at Kumasi. One thing that will forever be remembered with Osei Tutu was his establishment of the Golden Stool and its importance to the Ashanti people. The reason the Golden Stool was such an important remembrance of Osei Tutu is because it allowed him to create a sense of union and centralization for the Empire. He used the previous relations between the chiefs of the Amantoo and their large dedication to spirituality to convince them that the Golden Stool held the energy, soul, and power of the Ashanti people. With its large impact on the Ashanti people, the golden stool remains an historical symbol till this day.
Is there a difference in the boring mechanism of different Osedax species and has the mechanism been consistent over time? Bioerosion is an important process in nature because it changes the present environment. Typically, it is used to describe the process of breaking down a hard substance in the ocean by a living ocean. The bioerosion of coral into small particles results in the fine sand that show up on our beaches. Different organisms use different mechanisms for removing the substrate.
Spiritual If a landform has spiritual value it means that it is somehow spiritually connected to people to help them be one with the land. Karlu Karlu is sacred to the Indigenous Australians because it helps them to connect with their ancestors and the spiritual beings that they believe in. The Kakadu national park is another example of spiritual value as aboriginal people have lived there for 40,000 years or so. Aesthetic Aesthetic value is value towards the land based on its appearance and beauty. Landforms may have different aesthetic values as it is based on what you personally find beautiful and unique.
Grazer species Grazer species are especially important in coral reefs. Their principal tasks include the modification of primary production to fish-based trophic pathways, the mediation of competition between corals and microalgae, and the provision of an appropriate settlement base for new corals (Hughes 1994). Thus, coral reefs without grazer species often end up covered by algae. Due to the degradation of coral reefs, populations of reef fish that perform key ecological functions such as grazer species decline, which then initiates a positive feedback and causes more coral reef degradation (Pratchett et al. 2014).
Coral reefs are involute and various environment. They are maybe a standout amongst the most captivating and brilliant biological communities to be found in the marine environment. They are extremely remarkable from numerous points of view. coral reefs play numerous weight shafts in the marine world. They must have particular conditions to be made, and to survive.
Not bustling and boisterous as Melbourne or Sydney, Perth is attractive with its gentle and peaceful beauty. With fresh air, spectacular natural landscape of the farms flooded in sunshine and green parks, Perth is always among the most favorite tourist destinations. Kings Park is situated in Perth, Western Australia. With an area of over 400 acres, this park has become one of the largest park, even larger than the Central Park in New York. Kings Park possesses huge collection of plants and birds.
It generates significant income, supports a large number of employees, and contributes to the reef’s World Heritage Values by presenting the reef to tourists and the community. (Harriott, 2002) In the Great Barrier Reef Outlook 2009 (Anon., 2009) it states that both the Australian and Queensland Governments have direct legislative responsibilities within the Great Barrier Reef Region. A joint management arrangement between the Australian and Queensland Governments ensures integrated field management of the two marine protected areas, plus protected areas on the islands within the Region. In addition, many other government agencies, stakeholders and community members contribute to protection and management of the Great Barrier Reef, both on the water and in the
These signs show that the bank systems are important for the FKNMS for providing a structural support and high productivity for the biodiversity. Exploitation of these essential fishes and pollution of the water could greatly destroy the bank systems and cause a rippling effect among the ecosystem. Knowing how important these bank systems are, they should receive additional protection through management zones. New management actions will help protect fish and stocks, to ensure the stability of recreational and commercial fisheries. To ensure a higher water quality and sustainable habitats, anchoring activities and vessel discharges will be restricted in the management zones.
