Protect the Reef

20161020_img_9168_hh

From the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland to the Gondwanan Rainforest near Byron Bay, Australia is home to some of the oldest rainforests in the world. And underneath the waves, you can find many coral reefs surrounding the great island. Coral reefs are called the “rainforests of the sea” because of their incredibly diverse ecosystem.

The Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland, is the world’s largest coral reef that supports a huge diversity of life, including many vulnerable and endangered species. From coral to whales, clownfish and seagrass, so many beautiful and important species call the reef their home. Unfortunately over time, the reef’s health has been threatened due to many causes including climate change, pollution and fishing.

A Rainforest Expedition on Fitzroy Island

Take the ferry 45 minutes out to sea from Cairns, Australia, and you’ll find yourself on the tiny island of Fitzroy, a lush rainforest oasis surrounded by white coral beaches and brilliant blue waters that are part of the Great Barrier Reef. It was on this unspoiled tropical island that Tea and the King family join forces with National Geographic Explorer Jess Cramp. Jess flew in from her home base in the Cook Islands to explore the rainforest, snorkel the reef, and show us how to be scientists.
