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. Through a complex mix of voices from locals, to scientists and indigenous spokespeople, this documentary traces the many culprits including water contamination, crown-of-thorns starfish and dredging. But the elephant in the room is climate change and some of the exhausted scientists believe the fight is futile.

    Whatever happened to Muddy Scales?? I see you have a link to them above! They were going to do a documentary showing 2 sides to the story. about our port expansion at Abbot Point. This documentary hardly looks like it is giving two sides?? I also noticed in the trailer that you used footage from when Muddy Scales did their filming?? I think someone owes the people of Bowen an explanation??
