Abstract:

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. Politicians supported by big coal continue their assault on the science. Australia is the largest exporter of coal which is the largest contributor to emissions and one of the biggest financial contributors to political parties.
