Sea Turtle With GoPro Scopes The Great Barrier Reef

A turtle has filmed itself swimming through the Great Barrier Reef in Australia using a GoPro camera.

The small camera was attached to the reptile’s back to provide a “turtle’s eye view” of the sea environment.

The Great Barrier Reef is home to nearly 6,000 species, some of which can be seen on the turtle’s journey

The video was created by the WWF as part of a project about the level of pollution affecting the Reef’s turtles.

A decision is expected soon from the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on whether to list the Great Barrier Reef as endangered.

This year Australia unveiled a 35 year plan to protect the Great Barrier Reef following warnings that the famous site could be wiped out by extreme weather and pollution.
