Science is the key

What scientific discoveries will unlock a flood of subsequent breakthroughs?

The Foundation seeks out research and development projects that look to answer essential questions about the world around us – projects that are the difference between status quo and real change. 

We support the advancement of science and technology in ways that are new, experimental, and have the power to set off ripple effects. We look for projects that promote learning, conservation, understanding and growth. Our projects in this area include support for important global issues.

The Foundation invests in and manages over 20 research projects – covering wide-ranging topics from coral health, seagrass growth and ocean chemistry, to restoring reefs, reef 3D modelling and genetic sequencing – each one designed to produce clear and practical results to tackle the major challenges facing the Reef.
