Empowering people to save our reefs and oceans

Reef Ambassadors

Reef Ambassadors are reef role models who actively empower their communities to better understand and help protect marine environments at a local level. The program builds capacity for communities that are informed, engaged and empowered to actively participate in protecting reef health. 

As an Ambassador. you will share your knowledge about reef ecology, key findings from RCA volunteer reef survey teams and marine conservation. You are a role model for the community, helping to spread the word about how people can get involved in our programs and other relevant initiatives to help understand, appreciate and protect reefs and oceans.
