This book was first published in 2011 written by Martin Howard and offers a unique sight-seeing tour of the world's most amazing places from awe-inspiring, man-made structures to sites of natural beauty and everything in-between. The great barrier reef is in this book as it is one of the 7 natural wonders in the world. It contains a large introduction about what the reef is where it is located etc. It then goes on about the factors that contribute to the slow death of the reef and the human impact. This is very reliable as all the information is from a secure source which is well described in the text. It is useful because they're are plenty of photos and a map that shows exactly where it is located.

This youtube video explains the effects of human changes on an environment, evaluating the positive and negative. I like this as it does not only look on the bad side of things but it touches on the things we do as humans to protect and prevent the reef from dying. It may not be as reliable as other websites because it's not from a well known source but it is definitely useful with thorough information and photos.
This website explains about all the human threats to The Great Barrier Reef. It firstly has an introduction which gives a brief outline of what the reef is and what is happening. It then provides 5 different reasons why human impact is destroying the reef such as pollution, tourism, agriculture, non native species and climate change. This is reasonably reliable as all grammar is correct with lots of information and it is useful because it displays pictures and diagrams to help explain each reason.
