What is The Great Barrier Reef Foundation?

We lead the collaboration of business, science, government and philanthropy – groups who would not otherwise come together – for the benefit of the Reef. Our success is due to the quality of institutions and people we bring together – harnessing advances in science, technology and industry to ensure a future for this global treasure.

We are a champion of new ideas. We seek out the knowledge gaps. We seek to be a catalyst for solving the most complex and challenging problems.

Working closely with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, we fund priority projects that help protect and restore the Great Barrier Reef and build its resilience in the face of major threats.
