Murder On The Reef A natural wonder of the world brought to its knees! by Allen Dobrovolsky

Murder on the Reef follows the hotly debated issues surrounding the world's largest living structure, the Great Barrier Reef. But is it too late? Many scientists now believe as much as fifty percent of the corals in the Great Barrier Reef have died. And this is set to increase in coming years. Through a complex mix of voices from politicians & locals, to scientists and indigenous elders, Dr. Allen Dobrovolsky travels the length of the reef, on water and on land, to hear the many viewpoints of those people most closely linked with the Reef. From the decimation of the fishing industry and marine environment in Gladstone caused by port dredging to the warming oceans caused by climate change, the Reef is under siege from many different threats. But perhaps the biggest threat facing the Reef is our growing inability to cooperate and to reach agreement on the actions we need to take. Once vibrant corals are turning white, the marine food sources are disappearing and the Great Barrier Reef is becoming an indicator for what will happen globally.
