Tonight on Life on the Reef, human and animal residents of the reef prepare as a category 5 cyclone brings destruction to the North Queensland coast. But as cyclone season finally gives way to calm seas, the reef begins to recover and thrive. From the mangroves to the coral cays, reef fish populations flourish, and mysterious dwarf minke whales arrive to enjoy the warm tropical waters. Tune into WSKG TV on August 5th at 8 pm for the third episode of Life on the Reef. About the Program
