2 The underwater park could attract 750,000 visitors per year.
3 We may go snorkeling this afternoon.
4 Coral will probably grow on the sculptures in the underwater park soon.
5 We might swim to the park today.
6 We’ll definitely go to Cancun next weekend.
Reason 1: You should visit this park because it is the largest underwater sculpture park in the world.
Reason 2: You should visit this park because you will get to see a very clever way in which people are trying to conserve coral reefs.
The park is important because it protects sea life. It attracts sea creatures and encourages coral to grow on the statues. It also encourages people to think about the environment.
Dear Alex,
Guess what! I am in Cancun, Mexico. It’s amazing here. Tomorrow, I am going to visit the world’s largest underwater sculpture park! I’ll put on some snorkeling gear and swim out to an underwater park full of life-size statues. There are hundreds of sculptures of people and animals. The sculptor made the statues to attract sea creatures and encourage coral to grow on them. I’ll definitely have a great time. I can’t wait!
See you,
