Jenni Calcraft

 

Great Barrier Reef Assistant Project Coordinator - (Casual hours)

Jenni has a background working in HR/Volunteer Management, coordinating volunteers at RSPCA Qld. She started volunteering with Reef Check Australia in 2014 and was a core diver with the University of Queensland Underwater Club’s Point Lookout and Flinders Reef Ecological Assessment projects using RCA methodology. After being inspired by citizen science, she gained an ADAS diver qualification that has facilitated fieldwork opportunities throughout Queensland and overseas with various labs at UQ and JCU. 

Jenni has finally taken the “plunge” and moved to Townsville to pursue a career in Marine Science and is now studying at JCU. During university breaks, she is also part of the invasive crown of thorns starfish control team, helping to curb their damaging effects on the reef.

Jenni is extremely proud to be assisting with the coordination of Reef Check Australia activities in the Great Barrier Reef region and is looking forward to empowering others to save our reefs and oceans, just like RCA did for her.
