Summary reports



We currently have more than 60 priority monitoring locations along the Queensland coast and recently expanded our volunteer reef health monitoring activities to Western Australia's Ningaloo Coast. 

Our activities got their start on the northern end of the GBR, expanding to encompass Port Douglas, Cairns, Townsville, the Whitsundays and some prize spots on the outer GBR. In 2007, we kicked-off monitoring activities on the subtropical rocky reefs of South East Queensland. In 2011/2012, we expanded our projects to Central Queensland, setting up new monitoring locations on Heron Island, Lady Elliot Island and the Fraser Coast. We are continuing to expand our projects in this region to provide a strong connection between tropical reefs and subtropical reef transition zones. In 2013 we lauched Reef Check in Western Australia, adding the important reefs of the NIngaloo Coast to our list of locations. Thanks to a very welcome reception, are eager to continue our westward expansion.
