    La Balsa Park, Buddina

    Clean Up For The Hatchlings

    Join Reef Check Australia for the first clean up for the hatchlings of 2019 at La Balsa Park on on February 2nd, from 6am.

    This is an important area for turtles, but it's also very popular with human visitors. And unfortunately where there are large numbers of humans, there is also inevitably going to be rubbish.

    The Reef Check Australia team will be doing a clean up both in and out of the water. If you want to help out with the snorkelling clean up, you'll need to register before the day. So get in touch now to be part of protecting our reefs and oceans!

    West End, Brisbane

    Reef Check Australia Ambassador Training-Brisbane and Gold Coast, March 2019

    Reef Ambassadors are reef role models who actively empower their communities to better understand and help protect marine environments at a local level. 

    The Reef Ambassador program is a ground breaking project, training community outreach volunteers to actively inspire, motivate and support their communities to better understand and help protect local marine environments. This program mentors volunteers to develop their knowledge and skills in reef ecology, communications, behaviour change principles, and project planning to support positive locally relevant action for the reef. 

    We are currently opening Expressions of Interest for Brisbane and Gold Coast based volunteers who live locally and wish to stay involved over multiple events, projects and seasons.

    PLEASE NOTE: To participate on a Reef Ambassador training course, you must be able to attend all training dates, and commit to at least 6 months of volunteering. Training dates include: March 6 & 13 (6-9pm in West End, Brisbane) and March 16-17 (full 2 days workshop).

    This initiative is proudly supported by Port of Brisbane, QLD Government and City of Gold Coast.

    If this sounds like something you'd love, get your EOI in before 25 February.
