Great Barrier Reef Foundation

Great Barrier Reef Foundation is a large-scale charity established in 1999. Their main activity is registered as environmental activities primarily serving general community in australia.

The Great Barrier Reef is Australias unique living icon, but our Reef is coming under increasing pressure from a growing combination of manmade and natural threats. The Great Barrier Reef Foundation is saving our Reef and all its living diversity for future generations. Were using independent science to better understand the true condition of the Reef and the challenges it faces so we know where to focus our efforts. We inform and educate people on what needs to be done to address the causes of the problem, including advising governments and industry. And we raise funds to take practical action, funding hard work and innovative technologies from the best minds in Australia and beyond to protect and restore the Reef. With our partners were making a real difference by: Understanding the Reef with 3D mapping and DNA sequencing, partnering with groups like NASA, Google and the Australian Institute of Marine Science. Pioneering new Australian technologies, like QUTs Reef RangerBots and Melbourne University's sunshield technology, to monitor and protect corals. Restoring Reef islands to protect precious marine life, including the worlds largest green turtle nesting area. Rebuilding reefs using coral IVF, and partnering with the Smithsonian to store cryogenically frozen coral samples so theyre never lost.
