Bring home the Great Barrier Reef with new Island Talks

In Articles, Travel News by The H4C Team

From virtual snorkels to behind-the-scenes tours, island lovers can get their fix with a new video series, broadcast from the Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort on the Southern Great Barrier Reef. 

While it’s business as usual for the resident giant manta rays, turtles, seabirds and coral, the resort is currently in caretaker mode. But the handful of staff who remain are committed to bringing the island’s incredible beauty and wildlife to the world through their social channels and new weekly ‘Island Talks.’

 “We want to remain engaged with our guests and followers and give them just a little of what they would normally experience on the island.” Says Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort’s Amy Gash.

“The weekly Island Talks will cover our Island tours including: island history, nursery tours, bird tours, behind the scenes, reef walks and virtual snorkels to name a few. They will also provide an educational focus on very important issues including coral bleaching, climate change and the future of the Great Barrier Reef.”

 “Our followers will be able to ask our team questions and engage with them through the platform.”
