Australia's world-famous Great Barrier Reef has been a monetary value for the first time. The financial advising company Deloitte Access Economics has the worth of one of nature's most spectacular wonders. Deloitte's report a value of US$42.5 billion on the reef, and a worth of US$4.9 billion a year to the Australian economy. It also 64,000 full-time jobs in the tourism, fishing, recreation and scientific research industries. This over three times more than those by Australia's national airline Qantas. The report : "The livelihoods and businesses the reef supports across Australia far the numbers by many industries we would too big to fail."

Deloitte says the World Heritage-listed reef's worth one attempt at conserving it for future generations. People will after the reef better if they how valuable it is. Deloitte said the reef is worth "more than 12 Sydney Opera Houses". However, the reef and its 1,700 fish species in danger. Global warming is and killing the reef's coral. A local businessman said it was "astounding" that a value was on the reef. He said: "Why on earth do we quantify it in terms of money? We have a social conscience to after the Great Barrier Reef…. It's on our doorstep and we should be after it." He added: "If that our politicians...then that is good."
