View unbelievable imagery of the sea with this interactive, undersea viewer. View life along Barrier Reefs and in the Sea. See the different fish and other organisms who call the reef their home. Discover the characteristics of the ecosystem that allows for such a varied amount of organisms to call it their home. This project is just getting started as it surveys the Great Barrier Reef and documents it visually. Read the details by clicking "The Science." Click on Seaview Demo to begin your exploration. Rotate your mouse to look at any direction under the sea. Use the map along the right to choose a different location to view. Several objects are available to click on and zoom to for a closer look.

Have students create online posters individually or together as a class using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or PicLits (reviewed here. Create a poster campaign (digital or traditional) to identify why conservation is important in these areas.
