Windara Reef Restoration: Reinvigorating ocean ecosystems 

Most of the continent now known as colony-Australia was once surrounded and protected for thousands of years by massive reefs built up by shellfish, providing rich breeding grounds for marine life. However colonisation has decimated these ancient reefs and rendered them extinct. So the news that thriving artificial reefs are now being built to correct this travesty is very good to hear. 

Guest presenter Nicky Paige speaks with Anita Nedosyko from The Nature Conservancy about how the Windara Reef Restoration project in South Australia is reinvigorating native shellfish populations and contributing to carbon sequestration

Earth Matters #1232 was co-produced by Nicky Page and Nicky Stott
