Join a community organisation

The Great Barrier Reef is important to many coastal communities that depend on the reef for recreation and their livelihoods.

It is estimated that there are over 14 million recreational visits to the Marine Park by residents living within the Great Barrier Reef catchment every year, in addition to other visitors.

Communities contribute to reef protection and management in a number of ways.  Throughout the Great Barrier Reef catchment area there are community organisations that are helping protect the reef.

Join a group near you and start working towards a sustainable reef.
