One of the key focuses of the episode is the impact of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef. A global record-breaking marine heat wave has caused the water temperature to rise, resulting in coral bleaching and dying. Watson speaks with people who are working to reverse the damage and prepare for the future, offering a glimmer of hope in the face of these challenges.

Watson also ventures to remote locations such as Kangaroo Island and Lady Elliott Island, showcasing the diverse panorama of Australia while highlighting the urgency of addressing climate change.
