Is it just me, or is it getting warmer here?

The Great Barrier Reef is a giant underwater city, teeming with colourful life. Everything is alive, or made by living creatures. It is so huge it can be seen from space! And the whole thing runs on solar power.


Dr Norman is Head of Sciences at Museum Victoria where he leads the large and active natural sciences research team. For his own research he studies octopuses, squids, cuttlefishes and nautiluses (the cephalopods). He is also a trained teacher, an educational display designer and an experienced underwater cinematographer. His research and projects with documentary makers including BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channel has covered giant squid, poisonous blue-ringed octopuses, huge aggregations of southern giant cuttlefish and diving surveys of remote Indo-Pacific coral reefs.


Beautifully laid out, interesting snippets of information, and carries an engaging environmental message that is not too preachy. Would be great for primary school students.
