Tourism and Events Queensland is hosting a streaming video event called Reef Live today (June 6-7, 2013) focused on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef ecosystem. The event celebrates World Oceans Day, which is tomorrow, June 8. As I post this (June 6, 2013 at 9:04 a.m. CDT or 1400 UTC), the event is live and ongoing. Not sure how long it will last.
The video event features interviews with some of the world’s leading experts on the Great Barrier Reef. If you ever wanted to go there, or dive there, this steaming video might be for you.
Bottom line: Reef Live is a streaming video event from Australia, focused on the Great Barrier Reef.
