The Great Barrier Reef is rich and diversed. It is used for aquatic animals to live in and its also a tourist site plus it's one of the seven wonders of the world. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and it is the only living thing on earth visible from space. The marine park is over 3000km wide, which is 1800 miles. Its the world's largest collection of corals and has more than 400 different kinds of coral, over 1500 types of tropical fish, more than 200 types of birds, around 20 types of reptiles including sea turtles and giant clams over 120 years old. It's made and held down by mini pieces of coral put together. i think that it is stable because it's underwater and its held up by tiny pieces of corals.
