Google+: Catlin Seaview Survey Underwater Hangouts On Air


Richard: I’m Richard Fitzpatrick, I’m
a marine biologist and underwater cinematographer. I’ve got to see some pretty amazing, cool
things over the years but the good thing about my
job is that there’s still so much more to see. The Catlin Seaview Survey is for the first
time taking three hundred and sixty degree panoramic images of the Great Barrier Reef
so we can look at how reefs change with time and to allow people to experience the Barrier
Reef from anywhere in the world. An important part of the whole survey is public
engagement. The idea is that we don’t just want to be static. We want to be swimming
around the reef to allow people to come on the exploration with us. It’s like a virtual
dive for the people at home, without getting wet. Girl: Hi Richard! Richard: Hi guys, how are you today? Guy with child: Hey there, how are you? Kid: We want to see some fish! Guy: Look at that big green coral behind you! Guys: That’s pretty spectacular! Richard: There’s some species that can live
for over a thousand years! Richard’s Mate: I’m thoroughly jealous
of your diving but this is definitely the next best thing. Kid: What’s that? Richard: It’s like your garden-worm at home,
but it’s a squashed up, flat one! Girl: It’s yellow! Richard: Sometimes you can make ’em swim!
Oh look, there it goes! Richard: Look down, there’s a maori wrasse!
I’ll see if I can tease him out. Come on, come
on! Ah here he is, look at this! Kid: Whoww! Girl: Oh yeah! Richard: That’s the maori wrasse I hope you’ve enjoyed this hangout from
underwater. Facing the camera head-on makes and I hope to see you guys his goodbye address
all soon! So, have fun down there ‘ay! Group: Bye! Richard: We’re facing an uncertain future
on the reef, but to be able to communicate on what’s going on under there, it’s an
amazing thing to do.
