The Great Barrier Reef team was happy to welcome some new members to the team last month after a big weekend of Ambassador Training! The training focused on community engagement, sharing reef education and awareness through a variety of methods, planning events and creating projects. Stay tuned for updates from the new reef ambassadors!
Thanks to Conservation Volunteers for hosting us so we could run the workshop, for a guest lecture from Craig Turner about Tangaroa Blue and support from Townsville City Council. Credit to Gemma Molinaro for the awesome images!
This training is part of Reef Ecologic’s Integrated Coral Reef Citizen Science Program, which is funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
