Reef Monitoring

The close proximity of Magnetic Island reefs means they have been a main focus for local teams ever since we got our start. 

In 2017, working together with our industry partners, RCA was able to re-establish some historic sites and create some new sites at Townsville's offshore reefs including Lodestone, Wheeler, Keeper and John Brewer.
