Radio Marinara: The Life Of Diving In The Great Barrier Reef With Tony Fontes
The United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has again recommended that our natural wonder the Great Barrier Reef be added to its In Danger list, citing the recent impacts of climate change as serious threats to its future. This follows UNESCO’s recommendation in June last year for the Reef to be placed on the list.
Tony Fontes is a veteran Great Barrier Reef diver and tour operator, with 40 years experience exploring the reef and its beauty. Tony joins the studio live from the Whitsundays to chat about his own experiences diving in the reef, the current state of the local tourism industry and his first-hand account of climate change and its impacts on the reef.
