The naturalist examines what the next few decades may hold for this remarkable ecosystem, and looks at the work of scientists who are trying to preserve the area and the species that inhabit it, assisted by research vessel the Alucia. He also embarks on an ambitious attempt to dive further into the reef than ever before to witness the resilient coral that live down in the depths and see if they hold answers that may help to overcome challenges that lie ahead, as the impact of humans on the reef continues to take its toll
