The blue frontier is one of the richest and most complex natural habitats, and this series takes viewers where man meets wild and nature calls the shots.

Rangers, coast guards, scientists and residents guide and narrate this series giving an insiders view on what life is like under the sea, find out what effects humans have on the area, watch as wildlife is reintroduced and critical salvage missions are launched in this three-part documentary shot in the course of a year on location at Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
