Dr Jennifer Lavers has just returned from filming Blue Planet Live on Heron Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef. The four episodes aired live on BBC One during 26-31 March 2019 and discussed threats to the ocean, including coral bleaching, declining seabird populations, and increasing #PlasticPollution.

While on Heron Island, Jenn discussed possible collaboration with inspirational ocean scientists, including Professor Peter Harris - coral reef restoration expert.

Blue Planet Live was unique opportunity to communicate my science to an international audience, at at the same time, meet other marine scientists who are equally passionate about ocean conservation

She was thrilled to be reunited with renowned underwater camerman, Michael Pitts, who she filmed A Plastic Ocean with in 2012 on Midway Atoll and BBC Presenter Liz Bonnin who Jenn filmed 'Drowning in Plastic' with on Lord Howe Island in 2018.
