Reef Check Australia surveys are designed to look at specific indicators of coral reef health. Our data enable scientists and coral reef managers to better understand how reefs both change through time as well as how they may respond to specific impacts. This information is important to help us protect our coral reefs for future generations. 

Please be aware the information we collect describes our specific survey sites and does not necessarily represent the status of the reef as a whole. It is important to ensure coral reef monitoring data is always interpreted within the scope of the data collection methods used. Please see our website for more information on our survey methods.

Our data should never be used to determine the aesthetics of a dive destination.

Reef Check Australia cannot take responsibility for any implications that our data, or findings independently inferred from our data, may have for tour operators or other organisations visiting the reef.

Reef Check Australia cannot take responsibility for any consequences resulting from the public reporting of our data or from the public reporting of findings independently inferred from our data.
