The Ningaloo Coast volunteer reef monitoring project was launched in June 2013 to develop a framework for Reef Check on the Ningaloo Coast aiming to support World Heritage values and effective management. We launched 5 shallow snorkel monitoring sites in the Exmouth region.
Since then, we have been working with community partner Cape Conservation Group (CCG) to build a local citizen science reef health monitoring program. In 2016, we returned with support from CCG for further participant training and expansion of monitoring sites around popular tourism location, Oyster Stacks.
We’re actively working to build a locally-based Reef Check hub in Exmouth. It's just the beginning, join us for the adventure as we grow the program on the West coast!
