Summary

How can we work together to save the Great Barrier Reef?

Ancient and vast, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef belongs to us all. Sadly, this giant living organism that hugs so much of our Eastern coastline is facing potential catastrophe. Scientists are doing what they can to monitor, repair and build resilience into the reef’s natural systems, but they need all the help we can give.

Join our panel of reef specialists to find out how ‘people power’ is working alongside science to defend and preserve this amazing ecosystem for future generations.

See Justin Marshall at THE REEF NEEDS US: Saving Our National Icon.

THE REEF NEEDS US: Saving Our National Icon is presented in conjunction with Academic Partner The University of Queensland.
