Reef Check Australia offers a unique way for the community to help look after our coral reefs. We hope that encouraging more people to participate in our projects will increase general awareness of the crisis facing coral reefs and the importance of environmental conservation. This is our way of promoting Citizen Science. We aim to foster among the Australian population a genuine sense of collective stewardship of Australia’s coral reefs.
We partner with leading marine research organisations, tourism companies and dive operations, universities, government, local and international volunteers and a variety of other businesses and organisations.
The information our volunteer recreational divers collect is used by community groups, governments, universities and businesses to design and implement ecologically sound and economically sustainable coral reef management.
Our projects stimulate local action to protect remaining pristine reefs and rehabilitate damaged reefs worldwide.
