In the coral jungle

The Great Barrier Reef, stretching along the northeast coast of Australia for 2,000 kilometers, is the most unique coral formation in the world. The width of the reef in the northern part is on average two kilometers; to the south it increases, reaching 150 kilometers in places. The reef is separated from the mainland by a lagoon, the depth of which reaches 50 meters. The Great Barrier Reef is crossed by natural canals and ducts.

And now – you won’t believe it, my heart was beating like before an exam! – pen with the Continue reading

Discovery of Australia

On April 29, 1770, the heavy and clumsy ship Endeavor anchored in the waters of a charming bay. Among the team of captain James Cook, who went in search of an unknown southern continent, in other words, Australia, there was also a scientist – amateur botanist of the Royal Geographical Society Joseph Banks. He was so struck by the picture of dozens of plants that were unknown to the science of that time that he had discovered that he persuaded Cook to rename the seemingly named bay. Since then, it has been called the Botanical, that is, Botany Bay.

It must be said that the expedition with so many scientists on board went to the expanses of the Pacific Ocean for the first time. In addition to Banks, on board the Endeavor were the Swedish naturalists Solander Continue reading
