Home to hundreds of unique species found no where else on the planet, these highly productive waters are defined by rocky reefs which support vast forest which span over 8000km of Australia's coastline. 

In a partnership with National Geographic, we are celebrating the stories and science behind what makes this area so special, investigating the strong cultural connection to this country by the traditional owners of these lands and the communities and scientists who are working together to understand and protect this interconnected network of reefs linked by ocean currents.
