The genetic code of ten Great Barrier Reef coral species and their associated algae and microbes has been unlocked – a world-first achieved with genomics research and the international ReFuGe 2020 consortium. This valuable information will be used to help understand and manage the Reef’s response to a changing climate.
We lead the collaboration of business, science, government and philanthropy – groups who would not otherwise come together – for the benefit of the Reef. Our success is due to the quality of institutions and people we bring together – harnessing advances in science, technology and industry to ensure a future for this global treasure.
We are a champion of new ideas. We seek out the knowledge gaps. We seek to be a catalyst for solving the most complex and challenging problems.
Working closely with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, we fund priority projects that help protect and restore the Great Barrier Reef and build its resilience in the face of major threats.
