Reef Check in SEQ

South East Queensland (SEQ) is a transitional area where tropical, sub-tropical and temperate species all exist within the same habitat area. With pressures from a rapidly growing population, sedimentation from catchments, coastal development and climate change, this transitional area is gaining recognition as an important area to study and protect.

Our volunteer monitoring activities provide valuable information where there is currently a serious gap in the data; many of the sites Reef Check visits annually do not have regular long-term monitoring programs. Reef Check monitors more than 20 locations across the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay/Quandamooka and the Gold Coast.

You might be surprised about the amazing coral communities than can be found along the SEQ coast.
