This year for the first time we are partnering with Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef to capture sightings of coral spawning on a mass scale.
“This year's coral spawning is a defining moment in the history of the Great Barrier Reef. The corals out there today have survived two consecutive years of coral bleaching – their genes are a genetic gold mine for the future of the Reef. We are hoping that the next generation spawned from these genes will be more resilient in the face of climate change."
– Dr David Wachenfeld, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority Chief Scientist.
