Over a year ago I went on a road trip from Melbourne to Bundaberg all to visit Lady Elliot Island on the Great Barrier Reef! Now I have discovered this #fightforthereef campaign by WWF and Australian Marine Conservation Society to create awareness and stop the Australian Government from allowing up to 100 million tonnes of seabed to be dredged in World Heritage waters, to make way for 4 mega ports, serviced by up to 7,000 industrial ships crossing the Reef every year.
I created this mini video of my experience on the island and in the waters of the Great Barrier Reef because I feel that I am responsible as a traveller who enjoys beautiful places like this to ensure their safety for more travellers alike and more importantly the homes of all the sea creatures we all know and love.

Anytime I watch my scuba diving video in the Great Barrier Reef, it brings a smile to my face, as it was one of the best experiences of my life (see below).
I was obsessed with wanting to see a sea turtle and on my last dive I saw so many and got to touch one. I also saw a shark and a manta ray but no to footage of the ray unfortunately.
