Interpretation and Education Programs
The day-to-day operations of GBR Biology result in our team of Marine Biologists being experienced storytellers on the Great Barrier Reef. We focus on engaging through story, making memorable experiences for our guests through on-board presentations and guided snorkeling adventures. Community understanding and stewardship can increase political and community action, which translates to support for the reef’s long-term protection.
We also tailor Reef Education programs which specialize in connecting students to the reef systems. With places-based education through curriculum-linked experiences and research opportunities. Our educational initiatives are able to engage schools in the wider environment of the Great Barrier Reef and encourage students to be active global citizens.
