The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system and is recognised as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. This World Heritage Listed Area is a life force for many of those living in the 2300km of coastline that it borders. A “must see” for many of us ocean-lovers, there are over 2,900 individual reefs to choose from – Moore Reef, just off the coast of Cairns is just one of them!
Visitors to Moore Reef can spot turtles, molluscs and a huge variety of fish – including endangered species like Humphrey the Humphead Wrasse!
Reef Check Australia has been monitoring sites at Moore Reef since 2003.
Ecosystems like Moore Reef are essential to support marine life like Humphrey. By adopting a reef, you’ll be helping Reef Check Australia empower people to protect places like this not only for marine life like Humphrey, but also for us all to enjoy in the future.
