The Reef


Imagine Australia without the Great Barrier Reef?

Coral bleaching is constantly in the news but it’s just one way that human activity is degrading the reef. Overfishing and agricultural runoff are also doing harm but some smart young farmers are out to fix the problem. Farmers in Queensland are changing their practises to ensure that the reef can be enjoyed by all Australians for many years to come.

This is one of seven podcasts produced at the Horizon Summit in June 2016 with the support of SYN Media. Young farmers and agricultural science students from around Australia convened for the summit and shared their views on the future of agriculture. 

This podcast was produced by Matthew, Jasmine, Amy and Luke.
