The first Reef Check Australia Reef Survey Course for 2020 was held in the Whitsundays region in early March. We had 4 passionate participants who were excited to be joining the Reef Check Australia team.
Over the course of the weekend we visited Hardy Reef as part of the training activities, where we also conducted some Reef Health Surveys.
We had great support from our delivery partners, Cruise Whitsundays and the Coral Sea Marina Resort. During the weekend, we had Ngaro traditional owners participate in the weekends activities learning about Reef monitoring and how we provide information to management about the health of the Reef and what we can all do to support its ongoing resilience.
Thank you to those who attended the training, we are thrilled to have you on the Reef Check Australia team!
