The exhibition runs from Thursday 28th Feb until Sunday the 24th of March.

We protect what we love, so underwater photographers Harriet Spark and Richard Woodgett are sharing their love of the planet’s biggest living organism by bringing the Great Barrier Reef to Sydney.

Around the world, our stunning Coral Reefs are under threat.

The world’s top climate scientists have warned that if we don’t keep temperature increases to 1.5C below pre-industrial levels, coral reefs are likely to decline between 70% and 90%. If global warming reaches 2C, more than 99% of coral reefs are projected to decline.

The outlook for coral reefs around the world is bleak, and without more action globally, we face the risk of losing one of the Earth’s most precious ecosystems.

‘Reef’ is an exhibition that will showcase the splendor and beauty of coral reefs, and the abundance of life that calls this ecosystem home. It’s a hopeful reminder of all that we still have to protect - that it’s not too late to save the world’s largest living ecosystem.

Sydney Road Gallery. 563 Sydney Road, Seaforth.
