Several years ago, many believed the Great Barrier Reef was a lost cause. Pictures of coral bleaching topped news pages, and episodes of David Attenborough’s Blue Planet highlighted the devastating speed of which these underwater habitats were turning to ruins.
In years to follow, scientists and marine biologists searched for ways to save the Great Barrier Reef, and the results have been astounding. From conducting vital surveys to growing coral nurseries, the hope for the UNESCO World Heritage Site has been restored thanks to ingenious regeneration projects.
