For two billion years, long before trees existed our photosynthesising Stromatolites pumped oxygen into the ocean like underwater trees. When the oceans' waters were saturated, oxygen was released into the air enabling life to flourish and evolve. Hamelin Pool, within the World Heritage listed area of Shark Bay in Western Australia, is home to the most extensive living Stromatolite system in the world. Seagrass meadows (long may they remain) form a barrier between Hamelin Pool and the rest of the ocean protecting the Stromatolites in their hypersaline waters.
