Uluru Waterfalls: Rain Brings Spectacular Sight to Australia’s Famous Rock

Heavy rain has created waterfalls off Australia’s famous Uluru rock. This rock is located in Kata Tjuta National Park, and it usually gets about a foot of rain in a whole year, but this time some magic happened.

On March 21, Uluru was covered in rain showers in under 24 hours, resulting later in a spectacular waterfall. Uluru is known for serving some amazing sights after a rainy day when a lot of people from the nearby resort town of Yulara visit it to see the waterfalls.

Knowing the hot and dry Australian weather, it is quite surprising for the tourists who come here and see this gigantic rock in the middle of a dessert sprinkling water from the top. This rock was opened to visitors for climbing as well, but it got closed on October 26, 2019.

For decades in a row before closing down,  the Anangu, who have lived at Uluru for over 10,000 years, requested that tourists refrain from the popular practice. The park has been jointly managed by the Anangu and the Australian government since 1985.

Check out in the video below the spectacular view of the waterfalls from the Uluru rock.

Sea Turtles Get Rescued From Unnecessary Suffering

As you may know, barnacles are some sort of crustacean that usually fix themselves to rigid surfaces as rocks or even ships. Yet, sometimes they can attach to the sea turtles shell. Although one single barnacle doesn’t particularly cause any sort of damage, if the barnacles number found on a turtle’s shell is too high, that could turn into real struggles for the hopeless marine creature. Swimming difficulties, infections and even poor eyesight can be the result of these sticky crustacean.

And today we will focus on a random act of kindness, where a heroic guy from Sri Lanka, decides to help some poor sea turtles to dispose of a burden that could eventually cost their lives. The helpful man, called Chika Boy is great fond of wildlife and always willing to step up for the hopeless animals. This time, he removes the barnacles from the turtle’s shell!

So, in his latest YouTube video, Chika Boy shows us the easiest way to help a sea turtle to get rid of those unpleasant guests. You can see how many barnacles attached themselves to this tiny sea turtle. Fortunately, this nice guy removes them all using a special tool. Then, with its shell clean, Chika Boy releases the turtle back in the ocean.
