Australia's Great Barrier Reef already offers plenty of wonder, but dang, this blue hole is pretty cool.
It was apparently found by marine biologist Johnny Gaskell, who said he spotted the blue hole on Google Maps. He went to check it out with a team, despite it being far offshore, "further than our normal Reef trips."
"What we found inside was hard to believe, considering five months ago a Category 4 cyclone went straight over the top of it," Gaskell said in a statement via email.

- This Coral Reef Now Has Its Own Innovative Insurance Policy

But like other reefs, it’s facing multiple threats, including warming water, pollution, and damage from storms that are becoming stronger because of climate change. This has convinced local businesses to pay for something that is the first of its kind: an insurance policy for nature.
