Corals in the Outback

National Science Week
As part of the Australian National Science Week, CoralWatch engaged with communities in outback Queensland (Longreach, Mt Isa, Cloncurry and Winton) during 12 events. We presented the latest reef science during community workshops, school visits, library displays and Chasing Coral screenings, creating reef awareness and providing suggestions on how to help ‘Save Reefs from Home’. New virtual reality (VR) technologies provided a real-life reef experience, connecting participants with the reef environment and motivating people towards a more sustainable future for reefs.
