What We Do

What We Do

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation is saving our Reef and all its living diversity for future generations.

We use independent science

to better understand the true condition of the Reef and the challenges it faces so we know where to focus our efforts.

We inform and educate

people about what needs to be done to address the causes of the problem, including advising governments and industry.

We take practical action

to fund hard work and innovative technologies from the best minds in Australia and beyond to protect the Reef.



With our partners we're making a real difference.
