Life on the Reef
Home to a stunning array of animals, from microscopic plankton to 100-tonne whales, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the richest and most complex natural ecosystems on Earth. Beautifully filmed above and below the sea, this three-part series follows the creatures that live in this paradise and the people who are protecting it. It’s a monumental task as the reef and its inhabitants battle seasonal forces and environmental threats that challenge its delicate balance.
