Location 3 (low tide mark) has many biotic pressures such as wave action, fluctuations in water temperature and predators. Barnacles have many physical adaptations to cope living in this area. They have a tough, hydrodynamic shell, which allows them to withstand the constant pounding of the waves when the tides are high.

What Is The Great Barrier Reef? The Great Barrier Reef is a breeding area for humpback whales, migrating from the Antarctic and is also the habitat of a few endangered species including the Dugong (Sea Cow) and large Green Sea Turtle. In recognition of its significance, UNESCO listed the Great Barrier Reef as a World Heritage Site in 1981. Because of its natural beauty, both below and above the water's surface, the Great Barrier Reef has become one of the worlds most sought after tourist destinations.
It is also home to the large green turtle and the dugong, both of which are threatened with extinction. The Great Barrier Reef was included as a world heritage site because it meets all four natural world heritage criteria: 1. To contain superlative natural phenomena or areas of exceptional natural beauty and aesthetic importance. 2. To be outstanding examples representing major stages of earth's history, including the record of life, significant on-going geological processes in the development of landforms, or significant geomorphic or physiographic features.
Introduction The natural environment is the most essential resource available to man.
