On Tuesday, scientists who surveyed Australia’s Great Barrier Reef said warm seas have killed two-thirds of a 700 kilometer stretch of coral in the past nine months. Professor Andrew Baird, a researcher who was part of the reef surveys stated, "The coral is essentially cooked.” He said the die-off was "almost certainly" the largest ever recorded in any location due to the size of the Barrier Reef, which at 348,000 sq km – or 134,400 sq miles - is the biggest coral reef in the world.
