In this talk, I will show you a perspective through the lens of Traditional Custodians. I will explain why it is vital that we all come together now as the Reef’s children to help protect our Mother (Reef). I will describe to you how deep our connection is, the Reef is not just our cultural practice but also our cultural identity…as Traditional Custodians we are forged by the Reef…it is our lifeblood.
