Carbon dioxide is ruining the coral at the gread barrier reef because of pollution. The coral is under threat of dying off. If this kepps up the coral will lose color and won’t be interesting to look at.
Coral will start to crumble if we don’t try to stop and then there is no point looking at the wonderful scenary. When carbon dioxide meets with the ocean i sucks it up which affects the coral and sea. When you look at the coral you are seeing its skaleton. Usally coral is tough but if can’t compeat with the carbon dioxide.
Coral isn’t the only thing being affected by this carbon dioxide there are some plankton being affected by this gas. They found out that old coral is tougher than modern corla because of carbon dioxide. Scientests are looking for are other creatures being affected by carbon dioxide. I think pollution is a big thing for our tourists and global warming

On Sri Lanka’s cricket tour of Pakistan they were attacked by terrorist’s. Two of the cricketers were badly injured and some were just hurt, but there was 5 Pakistani policeman killed in the attack.
Pakistan was chosen to host the 2011 cricket world cup but after that assult i dont think cricket will be played there for a while. Once India and Pakistan were once together so they don’t really like each other that much. Australia will play Pakistan in the middle east instead of at Pakistan. Pakistan is next to the afghanistan war so some of the terrorist might of come from afghanistan. Pakistan will hope to play in there home town in a few years after the terrorist have settle down.
But sri lanka isn’t the only team attacked in Pakistan and that’s why Australia pulled out of there tour of Pakistan. i hope cricket will be played back in Pakistan because Pakistan are one of the best teams in the world and home of some of the best players.
Orangutans are starting to be endangered because people are cutting down trees for palm oil for all sorts of products. Orangutans make nest out of of sticks and palms but they can’t because they’re being cut down plus they make new one’s every night. Orangutans love mucking around and playing with each other.
The only reason tree’s are getting cut down is because of palm oil and palm oil goes in lots of food and drinks. Palm oil is labeled on the back of things as vegetable oil but it is really palm oil from the tree’s. Orangutans need the leaves so they can make the nest to sleep in every night so they should start doing something about. But people are trying by helping the Orangutans.
I think the tree’s should be kept there because there are other places besides the excact place. The orangutans should be able to live in the tree’s not on the groung.

A thirteen year old girl was attacked by a shark on the coast of tasmania. She was taken under by the shark but lucky enough her cousin was there to save her by hitting the shark in the head until it went away. Then he grabbed her and put her on his board and swam into shore taking her to the hospital.
She has had 200 stitches in her leg but she doesn’t want anyone to harm great whites by killing them.But when she gets out of hospital she hopes to get back on her surfboard and keep on surfing.Other instances like this just haven’t happened there there has been attacks at the famous bondi beach in sydney. Shark attacks are happening sixteen times a year but are going down.
I think shark attacks are devistating things because you are sort of helpless when it comes to being attacks but lucky for her she had someone to help her when she was in need. I hope shark attacks will start going down as years go on.
