Muddy waters: life and death on the Great Barrier Reef

Journeys to the plantations of north Queensland and into an underwater world to find out what's killing the reef and what can be done to save it. Sugarcane farmers are reeling at the prospect that their land management practices may be contributing to the problem.

  • "Looks at the public debate over the conservation of the Great Barrier Reef. The reefs most at risk lie along the coast between Cairns and Townsville, and sugarcane farmers are now facing the prospect that their land management practices may be part of the problem. Some locals are trying to bring all the parties together to develop a workable solution."@en
  • "Deals with the on-going deterioration of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, looking at the impact on North Queensland farmers of the scientific identification of agricultural run-off sediments, fertilisers and pesticides as a cause. Considers responsibilities, challenges and possible solutions."
  • "Several years ago, filmmaker Sally Ingleton learnt to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef. A tthe time she was working on a project far out in the Coral Sea and was fortunate enough to dive in some of the worlds most pristine and untouched coral gardens. Later, while diving in Indonesia, she was shocked by the contrast. Many of the reefs close to shore were bleached, covered in algae and in a general state of poor health. Whilst some of this was due to global warming, the majority was due to human impact. She found herself wondering if parts of Australia's Great Barrier Reef were also showing signs of ill health. And if so, who was taking its pulse? By 2010, 40% of the worlds coral reefs may be dead. By 2030, half of the Great Barrier Reef may be gone. Parts of it are already dying, but the reasons have not always been clear. Global warming and outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish have put extraordinary pressure on the reef. Now scientists have identified another threat sediments, fertilisers and pesticides from agricultural run-off."

  • "The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Global warming and outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish have put extraordinary pressure on the coral. Now scientists have identified another threat - agricultural run-off. Sugarcane farmers are reeling at the prospect that their land management practices may be part of the problem. Some locals are trying to bring all the parties together to develop a workable solution, but leading the way can be hard work. Muddy Waters is the story of a small community facing the challenges of responsibility and change. It asks what's killing the reef and can anything be done to save one of the world's greatest natural treasures?"@en
