This incredible footage shows what it's like to glide through the waters of the Great Barrier Reef with a turtle as your tour guide. It'll have you wishing Crush from Finding Nemo could really gave tours of the natural wonder.

Australia's chapter of the World Wide Fund (WWF) posted this footage to raise awareness about the World Heritage Committee's vote this week on how closely the reef should be watched. To capture the footage, WWF says it very carefully strapped a GoPro camera to the head of a green turtle to better understand its behavior.

The Great Barrier Reef is home to more than 6,000 species, WWF said, and you can see quite a few of them in this video. It's pretty cool, or as our favorite turtle tour guide would say, righteous.
