What comes to mind when you think of the largest structure built by living creatures? China’s sprawling Great Wall? Or maybe the skyscrapers of New York and Dubai? The truth is, no human feat of construction can compare to the sheer size and majesty of the Great Barrier Reef, which spans more than 1,400 miles off the coast of Australia and is home to countless unique species of aquatic life.
Narrated by acclaimed Australian actor Eric Bana, Great Barrier Reef brings audiences face-to-face with this natural cityscape.
Every year, millions of visitors travel by way of fins, flippers and feet to see the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world and a living treasure trove of biodiversity. Knowledge is the key to understanding more about this living Eden. Today, a new generation of reef guardians is committed to protecting this marine reserve, making a difference and sharing their knowledge of this extraordinary ecosystem, the beating heart of the reef.
Screening daily in the Heikoff Giant Dome Theater beginning on July 6, 2018, Great Barrier Reef showcases how this amazing sanctuary has endured for thousands of years and will continue to do so far into the future.
