Empowering people to save our reefs and oceans

We love our volunteers!

We have hundreds of people that are committed to helping Reef Check Australia save the reefs and oceans. Our volunteer network is supported by a small team of part time staff, dedicated to helping build a network of volunteers and partners to do awesome work for our oceans.

Everyone else is a volunteer: Board members, graphic designers, educators, surveyors, Ambassadors... you name it.  

We never cease to be amazed by all of you out there donating your unique skills, energy and time to this work. You rock and we couldn't do this without you. 


Join the Reef-minded movement

There are a huge range of skill sets and volunteer roles to ensure Reef Check works.  There is always plenty to do and we truly appreciate the people who help us do the work in the field, at events and behind the scenes. 


In the office

We regularly offer opportunities for students and professionals to further develop and/or apply their skills by signing on for a Volunteer Placement opportunity.

Please note that due to our small office and limited resources, we typically only accept volunteer placements for a minimum of 3 months, unless we have advertised for a help with a specific, one-off project.

The ocean needs heroes everyday. You can help inspire change for our reefs and oceans everyday by sharing knowledge and passion in your communities. Keep the message spreading. Here are a few things you can do to be an ocean action agent: 

  • Show a Chasing Coral Screening
  • Share our stuff on social media
  • Walk the talk -- use your reusable coffee cup, skip the straw
  • Tell people. Let you circles know about your reef visits and what you've seen. Bring up the reef at dinner. Talk about it and exchange what you know. if you dont know, go find out more! Let the world know reefs are under pressure and we need to act, but we CAN help!
