Love these videos and thank you so much to all the volunteers who contributed to them and work so hard to educate, advocate, restore and protect our three MBSs.

On your last point, we really wanted to keep these videos brief (1 - 1.5 mins) to increase the likelihood of them being watched. The Victoria Harbour MBS video already runs slightly.
