We’re raising $100,000 to launch the Great Reef Census, a massive collaborative effort to survey the entire Great Barrier Reef!
Spanning 2,300km in length and comprising more than 3,000 individual reefs, The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most incredible natural icons.
But like so much of the natural world, the Reef is under increasing stress from climate change and other local threats. Yet the actual status of much of the Reef remains unknown. In the last decade less than 10% has been surveyed in detail, and over 40% has never been surveyed at all.
To help protect the Great Barrier Reef for future generations, scientists need as much data about this vast and remote ecosystem as possible.
