Learn more about our reef

reef-check-sept-16-1 Want to learn more about your local reefs and prepare yourself to join Reef Check Australia on an expedition to check on reef habitats in the Great Sandy Strait?

Reef Check Australia is running two workshops in September for community members interested in learning more about their local reefs.

The workshops will boost skills for understanding and identifying common reef builders, and prepare volunteers to join an RCA field project to help refine reef habitat maps for the Great Sandy Strait.

All interested community members can join for the one day workshop and training (you don’t have to join in for field activities). You do not need a science background to participate, just be keen to learn!

reef-check-sept-16Please note that the workshop is mandatory for anyone wanting to join us on the field days and there are additional requirements for field volunteers (who will be boating and/or snorkelling). See webpage for details.

Workshops: Sept 10 (Urangan) and 13 (Tin Can Bay area). Field activities: Sept 11,12,14 (various locations, see website).
