Conservation that works
Reef Check Australia is a not-for-profit environmental organisation that engages the Australian community in coral reef conservation at a unique level. We are part of a global network of volunteers who regularly monitor and report on reef health, bringing Citizen Science to environmental issues.
We aim to protect and help to rehabilitate Australia's valuable coral reefs through a successful recipe of
1) community education, to raise awareness of the key issues, and
2) scientific research, to collect data that contributes to solutions.
