International Scientific Advisory Committee

International Scientific Advisory Committee

The Foundation is directly advised by an International Scientific Advisory Committee (or ISAC).

ISAC is made up of the leaders of research and management on the Reef, including the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, the Australian Institute of Marine Science, University of Queensland, James Cook University, and CSIRO. This is an important component of our rigorous governance process for prioritising projects.
