Australia's iconic Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world, a gathering of vivid coral that stretches for approximately 2,600 kilometers. Its maze of individual reef systems, tropical islands and coral cays provides a home for hundreds of different types of marine plants and animals.
But it is under threat from climate change, declining water quality and a variety of other challenges. To help halt the decline and safeguard the reef's future, conservationists are turning to open innovation.
