Coral Reef Research
The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is the largest coral reef in the world, and one of the most well-known and loved natural wonders. All marine systems are delicate and vulnerable to both human activity and natural disasters. Cyclones, coral bleaching and coral-eating Crown of Thorns Starfish are all causing damage.
Whilst the link between human activity and each of these causes is well documented, there is still much to understand including how widespread our impact is, where it is causing the most damage and how it can be mitigated.
Reef Teach is an Australian marine research and education organisation, operating on the GBR for 25 years. Reef Teach is operating a new programme called the Marine Discovery Programme. This cause will fund a research survey onto the GBR as part of the Marine Discovery Programme, and Reef Teach will share with us the results, content and findings from the survey, which we'll be sure to pass on to everybody who supports this cause!
