New Australian Reefs Discovered

It never fails to amaze me just how little we know about the Earth. A new (actually, it probably knew it existed) 100 km long coral reef was just discovered off the North coast of Australia. How can you sustain something you do not know? How can you love something you do not know exists? There is so much discovery yet to occur on the Earth, before and to prevent it from being lost forever.

Australian scientists have reported the discovery of coral reefs stretching 100km (62.5 miles) in the Gulf of Carpentaria, off the north coast. They were located near Mornington Island, where deep murky water obscured them from the view of satellites. Researchers have called it a major discovery that showed how little was known about Australia's continental shelf. The newly discovered reefs could be at least 100,000 years old.
