Reef Check Australia is an innovative citizen science focused charity dedicated to educating and empowering community volunteers to better understand, appreciate and protect oceans and marine environments.

Reef Check helps people help reefs by providing the tools for the community to take positive action for our reefs. Through their network of volunteers, they engage in citizen science, connect people with reef science, and undertake local conservation projects.

Reef Check Australia is all about engaging the community through hands on experiences. For the Nurture Festival we propose to have a virtual reef walk using cards with images of reefs directly off the Sunshine Coast coastline, and our REEFSearch slates (reef identification and observation underwater slates) to allow people to identify key reef environments, and animals found there.
