The Great Barrier Reef in Second Life is part of a wider group of islands including the Whitsundays. Australian SL resident Sebastian Oxide summarises his aims with the islands:
“I hope to offer fair land deals for Aussies but also for all SL residents who seek a nice, “no-drama” regions. I am also working on an Environmental Project where I hope to raise awareness on the issues facing the Great Barrier Reef and to educate people about this important spot on our globe. By simulating the effects of global warming, pollution and fishing on the reef you will be able to visit the reef in Second Life and see the effects that might take 50 years in the real world under a week. In a way, this is why I joined Second Life”.
There’s a website devoted to the environmental project and it’s follows another worthy environmental project we’ve covered previously.
