Climate change is the Great Barrier Reef’s biggest threat, causing rising sea temperatures, ocean acidification, and extreme weather events. The sequential mass coral bleaching we are witnessing on the Great Barrier Reef is the literal effect of climate change. There are now real concerns about the coral reefs survival from international and Australian experts in marine science, government, tourism, and the general population including young children who are the future. Our documentary features the main causes of coral bleaching and reef destruction and the role of human intervention in helping to limit the damage and regenerate the Reef. We cover the various Australian and international sectors and players who are involved by using their expertise and networks to counter the destructive forces that are working against the Reef’s ongoing ecosystem and survival. We tell the story of the various threats to the survival of the Great Barrier Reef, the effects of those threats, the diverse range of interests and people who are determined to beat the odds and the actions they are taking to Save the Reef. A diverse team of experts from around the globe is fighting to save the Reef. They all share their ideal future for the Reef, as well as projections of what progress can be made if the general population joins in with the efforts. Filming locations include Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia as well as overseas in Okinawa, Japan and Shanghai, China.
