Reef Check Australia believes in protecting reefs and oceans by empowering people. We are an innovative environmental charity dedicated to protecting Australia's reefs and oceans by engaging the community in hands-on research and education.
Our teams are part of a worldwide network of trained volunteers that regularly monitor and report on reef health in more than 90 countries using the standardised Reef Check scientific survey method. Our programs offer cost-effective solutions that empower communities to take an active role in understanding, monitoring and protecting their local reef resources.
We are an organisation that has always lived by the enthusiasm and commitment of its volunteers, staff and partners. As Chair of Reef Check Australia, I'm really pleased to Reef Check data being used and valued. This year the team have been reporting reef survey results, and have nearly finished the first long-term monitoring report. We're also making sure our data is available to natural resource management groups like SEQ Catchments for regional planning.
But behind all this good news are some significant challenges. Reef Check Australia, like many small, non-profit organisations, is feeling the pinch financially. We need to build new sources of income, and think strategically about how we can maintain and grow the organisation whilst keeping the quality and enthusiasm that are our trademark. To help us with that we've created a new position - Chief Executive Officer. So if you know someone with non-profit business savvy and a passion for the environment - tell them to get in touch!
