It's amazing what kinds of things go on in this world that happen too slowly for us to see or care about. It really makes you wonder whether or not we are just as "static" as these corals are to us to other beings of which we are unaware.

Check it out now while you've got the chance.. once Tony Abbot's government have dredged and constructed the biggest coal port in the world along its edges and ignored the fact that there is global warming happening and the ocean is heating up adding to the plight of the corals, this might be the last opportunity you get...
