Ellen DeGeneres has made the plea to help save the Great Barrier Reef.

In a video posted by Disney Pixar, Ellen urges the world to dig deep to contribute to the ‘Remember The Reef’ campaign.

‘I’m a big fan of your beautiful, great, wonderful Great Barrier Reef, which is home to my favourite fish Dory,’ Ellen says.

‘It’s critical that we protect this amazing place and we’d like your help.’

The ‘Remember The Reef’ campaign is an offshoot of a larger collaboration between Disney and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority that has ‘Finding Dory’ educational materials to raise awareness about the threats faced by the reef.

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation funds research and projects that help protect the reef from the effects of pollution, climate change and bleaching. The Queesland Government is currently matching donations dollar-for-dollar.

‘Finding Dory’, which is the sequel to the 2003 blockbuster ‘Finding Nemo’, will be released worldwide on 17 June.
