TEDx talk about the Great Barrier Reef

Our marine biologist Fiona Merida is fulfilling her lifelong dream of working on the Great Barrier Reef — and she shared her experience at TEDx Townsville.

TEDx is an independently run, regional event based on the TED global conference series that shares ideas and inspiration on a range of topics.

Fiona’s worked in reef education and management for 15 years, including training our passionate network of Eye on the Reef volunteers.

Her talk — ‘ The Great Barrier Reef — Life’s wake-up call — tells her personal story of exploration from the suburbs of Melbourne all the way north to the Great Barrier Reef.
