Hi Carole,
Very good to draw your attention to the Great Barrier Reef.
If it goes so everything disappears, thanks to climate change.
Very nicely done all the crocheted.
Greetings Irma

How tragic for the Great Barrier Reef to be damaged, Wonderful way of bringing attention to this, and hoping that there are things that can be done to remedy this. Have you snorkeled or dived in this area before?? It must be amazing
