Reef Check Australia

Our teams are part of a worldwide network of trained volunteers that regularly monitor and report on reef health in more than 90 countries using the standardised Reef Check scientific survey method. Our programs offer cost-effective solutions that empower communities to take an active role in understanding, managing and saving their local reef resources.

Reefs around the world are under enormous pressure from human activities and climate change. Although Australia’s reefs are among the best managed in the world, they are not immune to these threats.

In Australia, Reef Check has been operational for over 10 years with more than 50,000 volunteer hours donated to the cause. Our unique program is essential to fill gaps in reef monitoring in locations that would not otherwise be researched and offering the unique opportunity for hands-on community engagement in reef conservation. Since 2001 we have trained >250 community divers to collect high quality monitoring data at >50 dive sites along the Queensland coast.

We are self funding and rely upon grants and charitable donations to support our activities.

“Community participation is the key to promoting a sense of stewardship and a duty of care for the marine environment.” ~ Australia’s Ocean Policy
