Reef Check Australia Ambassador Training - The Whitsundays June 2019
The Reef Ambassador program is a ground-breaking project, training community outreach volunteers to actively inspire, motivate and support their communities to better understand and help protect local marine environments. This program mentors volunteers to develop their knowledge and skills in reef ecology, communications, behaviour change principles, and project planning to support positive locally relevant action for the reef.
As part of our Community Reef Protection Project, funded by the partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, Reef Check Australia is running Reef Ambassador training for Whitsundays’ based volunteers who live locally and wish to stay involved over multiple events, projects and seasons.
These Ambassadors will become enthusiastic community leaders, promoting information about the condition of our coral reefs and educating communities on what they can do to help.
We are currently opening Expressions of Interest for June.
PLEASE NOTE: To participate on a Reef Ambassador training course, you must be able to attend all training dates, and commit to at least 6 months of volunteering.
The course will run from 13-14 June, with a compulsory meet and greet and intro session on the evening of 10th June.
If this sounds like something you'd love, get your EOI in before 3rd June.
