World Oceans Day 2013 - Reef Live

Tune in on World Oceans Day on June 7th for a ground-breaking 12-hour underwater broadcast live from the Great Barrier Reef!

Following up on last year's successful launch of the Catlin Seaview Survey, where a team of scientists and explorers brought Google Street View underwater for the first time, this year's Reef Live event is set to raise awareness of our oceans even further.

A mix of marine biologists and a who's who of local and international coral reef experts will come together to discuss the future of our coral reefs during 12 Google+ Hangout sessions, which will be broadcast live on our YouTube channel.

On the day you will be treated to live panel discussions from the dry studio at James Cook University in Cairns and be able to interact with marine biologists in real-time from a specially set up "underwater studio" on the outer reef.

The event will be headlined by Emmy award-winning underwater cinematographer Richard Fitzpatrick - mostly known for his work with National Geographic's Great Migrations and BBC's Great Barrier Reef - who will be joining you from the Pinnacle dive site on the Great Barrier Reef.

Schedule and more information coming soon!
