We've been monitoring sites in Cairns and Port Douglas since our early days.
In 2016 and 2017 the Great Barrier Reef was hit hard by two years of consecutive mass coral bleaching. A number of sites in the Cairns and Port Douglas area were subject to consecutive years of bleaching. But there is still so much here to celebrate.
Our monitoring sites in the region include locations such as Low Isles, Opal Reef, Agincourt Reef, Hastings Reef and Moore Reef. In 2017, the RCA survey team also launched new sites at Fitzroy Island.
