    Located off the coast of Queensland, Australia and stretching across 1,429 miles, the Great Barrier Reef is recognised as the largest coral reef system in the world. The reef is home to a bounty of aquatic life that thrives in the coral there. Astounding glimpses from the marine ecosystem often make it to social media, stunning netizens.

    This video footage, captured by a drone hovering over the Great Barrier Reef shows thousands of sea turtles just basking in the Sun while enjoying their swim on the surface of the Coral Sea.

    The video looks like a recording of a reunion of a large turtle family. Take a look.

    The Great Barrier Reef is home to six of the world's seven marine turtles, including green turtles, small omnivorous Hawksbill turtles, and rare Loggerhead turtles.
