Celebrating Citizen Science in Queensland!

January 29, 2019

The Reef Check Australia team headed over to the Queensland Museum last week to join in the celebrations for the launch of the Queensland chapter of the Australian Citizen Science Association, and the new Queensland Government grants program which supports citizen science projects in the state.

Reef Check shared a table with the Gold Coast Catchment Association, who were sharing information about a number of citizen science organisations supported by the City of Gold Coast.


With applications to our upcoming Reef Scuba Surveyor and Reef Ambassador training courses having been opened to applicants on the Gold Coast, we're looking to boost our involvement in the region this year with support from the council of the City of Gold Coast.

The event was also attended by the Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy, Leeanne Enoch, who was interested to hear about Reef Check's work on reef monitoring throughout the state.



The team were happy to be part of this event celebrating the important role that citizen science will play in our regional future.
