The future famous British navigator James Cook as a child’s kows, he studied at school only three years old, and in seventeen he moved to the seaside town of Stats. He did not become a fisherman, but went a grocer in the bench. Once during the storm, the shop was washed away into the sea, and from this day his whole further life belongs to this element.

Cook entered the maritime service. By sailor he served only one month, then he became a boat camsman, an assistant to the navigator and, finally, brilliantly passed the nastrum exam. That’s where he originated with his dream – bring white spots from the map of the Earth.

The result of the first expedition of Cook was the opening of the Eastern Coast of Australia – the new South Wales.

A month and a half of the Cook without any special incidents moved along the coast of New Zealand, farther north until I was collided with a giant coral coral. This dangerous for the navigator is a band of reefs and chalks separates the northeast coast of Australia from a large barrier reef. Behind Cape Tributeishn, or Cape is adversity, as his cook called him, the ship appeared on the coral reef. With great difficulty, the ship was repaired, and it went on the road again, maternally leading among reefs and chalks.

In the miracle of the preserved diaries of Cook there is a record after the ship appeared on the reef: "In these truly, terrible moments continued to do what was in their power, as calmly as always. The dangers that we had previously managed to avoid were insignificant before the threat to be thrown on the reefs, where in a moment the ship would not be left".

The team was able to slip through the reefs on the aisle they called "Providence". Passing the strait separating Australia from New Guinea, Cook confirmed the fact of its existence. In the coral sea, he studied and put a big barrier reef on the map.

Reef reminds half immersed in water a fortress wall consisting of almost 2900 separate reefs and 71 islands. His age is ten thousand years. After all, the coral reef structure is a grand and complex, in which the variety of forms reached a truly limit. This is a giant bunch of life in which hundreds of living organisms are represented.
