Short Film: PARADISE WON’T PROTECT ITSELF, 13min., Australia, Documentary

Curiosity is the first step in environmental change for the world’s coral reefs.

In 2020, we were welcomed into the world of Marine Biologist Johnny Gaskell, who leads a team pioneering a Reef Restoration Program in the Whitsundays Region – a mountainous archipelago made up of 74 mostly uninhabited islands inside the Great Barrier Reef. Alongside Australian Marine Biologist Laura Wells and South African Surfer Frank Frank Solomon, we explore the mind-blowing beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and learn of the big challenges this region faces. Johnny is a big advocate for people learning first hand and encouraging everyone to jump in the water and make up their own minds. It’s the curiosity that gets people invested and motivates them to be apart of reef protection. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most spectacular living networks on earth. Seeing it for yourself will leave you speechless. Learning and understanding of its connectedness is the number one driver for innovative and creative change.
