Our Board of Directors comprises representatives of Australian business, science and philanthropy, reflecting the charter to bring all sectors together for the benefit of the Great Barrier Reef.
The Board has the job of ensuring all activities are directed towards securing the funds needed to support research to protect and restore the Great Barrier Reef. And importantly, these research outcomes must help and inform the Reef managers.
The process of selecting the priority research projects for funding is rigorous. It encompasses the Foundation's International Scientific Advisory Committee, Technical Advisory Group, Portfolio Committee and the Board.
Members of the International Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) are leaders in Reef research and management. ISAC ensures all investments are independent and focused on strategic and high-priority knowledge to benefit the Reef.
