The Great Barrier Reef is one of the richest and most complex natural ecosystems on earth. Home to a stunning array of animals, from microscopic plankton to 100-ton whales, it is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. From the coral cays of the outer reef to the Islands of the Torres Strait, the reef's human residents work to find that critical balance between our needs and those of an ever diminishing natural world. Over the course of a year, Life on the Reef follows those who live, work, and play in one of the most extraordinary places on the planet, Australia's Great Barrier Reef–where man meets wild and nature calls the shots. It's high stakes and high drama across our greatest marine wilderness.
