Presentations are held from 6:30pm - 8:30pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Cairn's unique education centre for The Great Barrier Reef
The Reef Teach presentation is a very entertaining evening, full of amazing facts, beautiful images, and the opportunity to handle a wide range of corals and other marine specimens including some of the dangerous creatures you wouldn't want to touch if they were alive! It will amaze, inspire, and captivate you, and have you laughing about the funny facts and weird and wonderful ways in which the reef works!
Our presentations offer you a special insight into the magical world of the coral reef. Diving and snorkeling are so much more enjoyable when you know what you're looking at! At Reef Teach we believe that "with learning comes appreciation" and the knowledge you gain from Reef Teach will help you to better understand and enjoy your visit to The Great Barrier Reef. By the end of an evening at Reef Teach you'll be able to identify many of the common fish and corals, be amazed at the extraordinary creatures (and the stuff they get up to!) out on the reef, and be incredibly excited about your undersea adventure. When you get out to the reef you'll be thrilled at your ability to recognise a lot of what you see.
During the presentations you will also learn about some of the threats to coral reefs, both natural and caused by humans, such as Crown-of-Thorns sea stars, coral bleaching, and marine debris, and discover heartbreaking facts about man's disregard for this extraordinary underwater environment. We'll help you become more aware of our marine environment and tell you about some of things you can do to help look after marine life for future generations. We encourage all visitors to The Great Barrier Reef to follow eco-tourism guidelines and "take only pictures and memories, and leave only bubbles"!
