Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Reef Check Australia believes in protecting reefs and oceans by empowering people. We are an
innovative environmental charity dedicated to building community capacity to understand,
appreciate and protect oceans. Our three core activities are:
INSPIRING reef-minded people: We connect people with reef science by providing an unbiased
source of accessible, meaningful and accurate information about reef health.
ENGAGING volunteers in reef health monitoring: We foster best-practice reef citizen science
programs by providing our volunteers with the training, resources and networks to collect and
share globally-standardised reef health data for science and management.
EMPOWERING local conservation action for the Reef: We create opportunities for people and
communities to identify how they can help tackle reef health issues with local on-ground action
through knowledge, tools, resources and support.
