In this episode, we explore an innovative project designed to help the Great Barrier Reef. It's called Virtual Reef Diver, and the project was named by ABC Science as its 2018 Citizen Science Project for National Science Week. The best part of the project is that you, or anyone in Australia or around the world, can help with the project from the comfort of your home or office. 

ACEMS Communications and Media Officer Tim Macuga hosts this episode. He interviews the project leader for Virtual Reef Diver, ACEMS Associate Investigator Dr Erin Peterson.
