While the world stays at home, life on and around Lady Elliot Island on the Southern Great Barrier Reef is continuing as normal for the giant manta rays, the turtles, the seabirds and the incredible coral surrounding the cay.

The boutique eco-resort is usually heavily booked year round, with guests traveling from around the globe for the unique nature experiences the resort offers.  But with the world pausing for the time being, the eco-resort’s skeleton staff are bringing the island to the world instead with their new video series Island Talks.

Launching this week on Instagram, the first video has wracked up thousands of views already.  In each video, you will meet the people who work on this wildlife haven, including marine biologists and divers, and learn the amazing stories of the island’s flora and fauna, it’s importance as a breeding and feeding ground, it’s history of rehabilitation under the Eco Resort’s management, and so much more.

Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort’s Amy Gash said, “While the island is in caretaker mode during the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to remain engaged with our guests and followers and give them just a little of what they would normally experience on the island.”

“The international connectivity of social media means we can bring our social media family on tours and adventures around the Island without having to leave the safety of their living rooms!”

“The weekly ‘Island Talks’ will cover our Island tours including; island history, nursery tours, bird tours, behind the scenes, reef walks and virtual snorkels to name a few. They will also provide an educational focus on very important issues including coral bleaching, climate change and the future of the Great Barrier Reef.”

“Our followers will be able to ask our team questions and engage with them through the platform.”

“We can’t wait to bring you on these adventures to provide travel inspiration, education and hope during this challenging time for Australia and the world, and to welcome our guests back in the future to see for themselves just how magical this place is.”
