The World Whale Conference is taking place in October this year, toward the tail end of the whale watching season, and aims to bring together researchers, conservation groups, artists and tourism operators to create a united community around whales. With this year’s theme being “Journeys That Inspire Change,” now is a great time to go whale watching with an Ecotourism Australia certified operator to make sure your next journey is making a positive change with sustainable whale watching.
For the months of September - November, we'll be posting a series of Humans of the Reef case studies. This case study series will capture the faces and stories of the people who work on our reefs - their day-to-day, their perspectives, their favourite things. In doing this, we want to strengthen awareness about the value of, and threats to, coral reefs and their associated ecosystems and show off our certified, best practice operators who are doing their part to protect these incredible natural wonders.
