Dive Deep into The Great Barrier Reef

David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef is an incredible interactive journey to see how the reef developed over time, how this complex, biodiverse and fragile reef is reacting to our changing world, and what we can do to save it.

This site is packed full of interactive information that allows you to venture below the waves and see the world through the eyes of a Mantis Shrimp, listen to Parrot Fish munching on coral, take a dive with a Dwarf Minke Whale and so much more. It is a great way to become acquainted with this wonderful world along Australia’s coast.

One of the most compelling interactive demonstration is the acid effect on the limestone skeletal structure of a sand dollar. You can click and move the time period across the screen to see how quickly the sand dollar breaks down.

Watch the wonderful world of scientists.
