The Great Barrier Reef. It’s a natural treasure unlike any other place on earth. Beautiful, irreplaceable... under threat.

When we see the pictures of bleached coral on our screens, it’s easy to feel like the problem is too big, and not see ourselves in the solution.

Everyone's actions though - big and small - are vital to the Reef's future.

Some of the brightest minds are focused on decoding the secrets of the reef and solving the pressures that threaten it. Each day, new solutions are being discovered.

In our day-to-day life there are things we can do too - catch the bus to work, install energy efficient light globes, or tick-the-box to Fly Carbon Neutral when we book a flight.  

Combined, our little actions add up to a big impact.

In Revive the Reef, step into a magical underwater landscape and work with friends and strangers to unwind the pressures threatening the Reef.

With each turn of the handle on illuminated coral, your surrounds will transform from bleached white to a kaleidoscope of colour.

As you work together with your newfound community to bring life to the Reef, you’ll be immersed in an explosion of colour and real Reef sounds - a magnificent celebration of our Great Barrier Reef.
