Great Barrier Reef has a chance at life, courtesy the pumice raft

Aug 28, 2019 18:00 IST

The gigantic raft of pumice floating across the South Pacific Ocean might be a hazard for vessels, but some scientists believe that it might be a blessing for marine life. It is speculated that the floating structure will attract corals, algae, worms and other marine species. According to a geoscientists, it is projected that the raft will drift towards Australia's Great Barrier Reef in a year, , a spot plagued by dying corals due to global warming, and as a result, might

temporarily reinvigorate it by transplanting fresh and healthy corals to the environment.
