Hangout LIVE on the Great Barrier Reef for World Oceans Day


For those of us that are unable to travel to Australia for World Oceans Day, Tourism and Events Queensland is bringing the reef to the world. Starting at 10am (AEDT) on June 7th (which is 8pm EST June 6th for those of us in North America) the coverage will be live-streaming for 12 solid hours. During this unique event, audience members from around the world will be able to interact with questions and commentary via twitter, G+ and YouTube. SCUBA divers will be taking questions in their underwater 'Sea Studio' and expert marine biologists will also be on hand.

What a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with the Great Barrier Reef! Make sure to check it out between 8pm and 8am EST.
