Event Overview: During the "Introduction to the Great Barrier Reef" videoconference, your students will participate in a virtual dive into Reef HQ Aquarium's Coral Reef and Predator exhibits and will have the oppurtunity to interact live with a SCUBA diver while they learn about the Great Barrier Reef. Students will learn about the diversity of reef creatures, the adaptations they possess and the role they play within the reef community. The presentation also explores the inter-relationships between marine creatures, threats to the reef and ways we can all help protect and look after the Great Barrier Reef. Should you have a specific focus or interest, our educators can tailor your presentation to meet the needs and learning objectives of your class. For example, other focus areas that can be included or expanded upon as part of the session include topics such as Climate Change and its effects of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Managing the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Human uses of the GBR. The program is facilitated by a team of highly qualified marine educators who are flexible in their delivery of presentations, which can be targeted to suit all ages and stages of learning.
