LIFE ON THE REEF
Part 3 of 3

Air date: Wed., Aug. 5, 8:00 pm

 

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the richest and most complex natural ecosystems on earth – home to a stunning array of animals, from microscopic plankton to 100-ton whales. From the coral cays of the outer reef to the Islands of the Torres Strait, the reef’s human residents work to find that critical balance between our needs and those of an ever-diminishing natural world.

 

Part 3 of 3
See how humans and the animal residents of the reef prepare for a category five cyclone that brings destruction to the North Queensland coast. As cyclone season finally gives way to calm seas of the dry season, the reef begins to recover and thrive.
