World Oceans Day

Last year for World Oceans Day our Reef Live event brought a mix of marine biologists and a who's who of local and international coral reef experts together to discuss the future of our coral reefs during 12 Google+ Hangout sessions, which were broadcast live on our YouTube channel.

In 2014, we have the pleasure of supporting local Brisbane filmmaker, Matt Raimondo with his submission of Miracles of Mon Repos in making the official selection of World Oceans Day Hawai’I Film Festival. Matt’s film captures the miracle takes place nightly on the shores of Mon Repos beach, in Bundaberg where the Southern Great Barrier Reef begins. This is where more than half of the entire concentration of nesting loggerhead turtles in the Southern Hemisphere returns home to lay their eggs.

Celebrate World Oceans Day on 8 June 2014.
