Don’t give up on our reef
You can jump in the water and be inspired by the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, but the threats are major, real and immediate. If we respond now with action not apathy, there’s hope.
The reef’s greatest threats
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the first natural wonders to suffer from the direct impact of climate change. Poor water quality, caused by land-based runoff, and damage by crown of thorns starfish are making our reef even more vulnerable. And that’s just the beginning.
Building a global community
We need to engage citizens from around the world; empowering them to make the change that needs to happen. From local community education to large-scale initiatives with global partners, every action has impact.
A symbol for our citizenship
Entitled 'Citizens Gateway', the newly revealed structure is so much more than just an astounding piece of art. It's a symbol of diversity, resilience, and the circle of life that thrives on the Great Barrier Reef.
Unite for the reef.
Together, we can ease the pressures that the reef faces - but we need your support to do it. Because it’s only when we’re united as Citizens, that our individual actions can come together to make a real, physical impact on the Great Barrier Reef.
