The lead charity for the Great Barrier Reef
Our Reef is the world’s largest with an extraordinary diversity of marine life. It is under serious threat. We are the lead fundraisers for the GBR & over 18 years have raised over $90m for Reef projects. 64% is from corporate and private philanthropy.
Role for all
Everyone has a role to play in protecting the Reef. We bring together Australia’s leading scientists (from CSIRO, AIMS, GBRMPA, unis and research institutions), with business (inc. leaders of Australia’s largest companies), philanthropy and government.
No. 1 threat
Climate change is the greatest threat to the Reef. That’s why in 2010 we launched the world’s first integrated project portfolio to tackle climate change and coral reefs.
Project selection & oversight is done by the International Scientific Advisory Committee - leaders of research & management on the Reef, inc. GBRMPA, AIMS, UQ, JCU, CSIRO. Chairman’s Panel & corporate partners have no role in selecting projects.
80c in $1 to the Reef
We strive to keep our administration and fundraising costs low – 80 cents in every dollar goes to Reef projects.
