- Program Description
Australia's Great Barrier Reef is host to the planet's most spectacular array of marine life, including more than 2,000 species of fish. Until now, no wildlife filmmaker has attempted to chronicle the awesome diversity of a typical 24-hour period of activity at the reef's edge. From dawn to dusk, NOVA observes the activities of such startling creatures as the blind shrimp and the pop-eyed goby fish.
