To many, it may seem as though the idea of travel is worlds away from the lives we are living at the moment. With more and more people staying in their homes, flights being grounded, and travel agencies closing up shop, adventurers have had to come to the conclusion that they won’t be able to go anywhere anytime soon. However, just because you can’t physically go somewhere doesn’t mean that you can’t virtually go somewhere, as you can now let David Attenborough give you a virtual tour of the Great Barrier Reef.
A Famous Face
David Attenborough is a true gem, and there’s no doubt about the fact that he is a hugely famous face. This British natural historian has been in love with the natural world from a young age, and he has since become the name behind some of the most prestigious nature documentaries that this world has to offer. His work has won his countless awards, and while he’s in the same boat as us all at the moment, he still wants people to marvel at the natural world. So, he’s come up with a creative solution to show off this planet from the comfort of his – and your – home.
A Virtual Guide
Called David Attenborough’s Barrier Reef, this interactive journey focuses on what he calls “one of the most spectacular, complex, but fragile ecosystems in the world.” As you sit on your couch, David can guide you through the waters, examining the beautiful coral reefs, some of the 1,500 species of fish that call the reef their home, and stunning views that will make you feel as though you’re right there. Of course, that’s not all he has to offer. David will also go into facts and figures about this ecosystem, while also explaining all you need to know about the animals and their habits.
Amazingly, you can find David Attenborough’s Barrier Reef on YouTube.
