Synopsis: 
The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Global warming and outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish have put extraordinary pressure on the coral. Now scientists have identified another threat - agricultural run-off. Sugarcane farmers are reeling at the prospect that their land management practices may be part of the problem. Some of the locals are trying to bring all the parties together to develop a workable solution, but leading the way can be hard work. “Muddy Waters” is the story of a small community facing the challenges of responsibility and change. It investigates what is killing the reef and whether anything can be done to save.
