Life on the Great Barrier Reef

@ VOL 4 ON SEP 07, 2013

"When I dive in the Great Barrier Reef, there is such a sensation of peace and tranquility and a sense of connection with nature. It is one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had anywhere in the world."

In "Life on the Great Barrier Reef" from PechaKucha Night Townsville Vol. 4, David Wachefeld speaks on his favorite aspects of the barrier reefs: the fish, its abstract patterns and color, and his emotional connections to it. 

In our time of ever growing environmental awareness to the degradation of coral reefs, David ignores the negativity of controversial issues related to the Great Barrier Reef but instead focuses on its beauty and his fascination with the countless species of wildlife therein.
