Video: The Stunning Great Barrier Reef and the Threats That It Faces

In this video we join surfers Belinda Baggs and Wayne Lynch, along with free diver Kimi Werner, as they travel on a sailing expedition to the Great Barrier Reef to assess the health of the largest living structure on the planet. The GBR is an important ecosystem for thousands of different species and provides protection from storms to the coast of Australia. But, it is under threat and it is now believed that more than half of the reef is dying or already dead. This clip gives us a look at this changing natural wonder and what it might take to help it survive.
