Almost finished! Is the sighting ready to submit to Eye on the Reef?
The Eye on the Reef Sightings Network is a community based program developed to capture the interesting, unusual and amazing experiences people have on the Great Barrier Reef.
You can use the program to send your photographs, video recordings and observations of the Reef to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.
These images and observations help us to manage the Reef so that it is preserved for future generations.
We established the Sightings Network in collaboration with the tourism industry in 2007. Since then, Reef users have used the network to record thousands of sightings of interesting marine animals.
Sightings have included humpback whales, dugongs, dolphins, turtles, sharks and many other amazing animals and experiences.
The Eye on the Reef Sightings program has now expanded to include everyone using or visiting the Great Barrier Reef who wishes to record their experiences.
As well as using the program to record interesting sightings, you can use it to report strandings of turtles, dugongs, whales and dolphins.
You can use the program to report marine incidents such as oil spills and chemical pollution.
The Great Barrier Reef is a vast and complex ecosystem. The Sightings Network helps build knowledge about species diversity, abundance, habitat and range.
We welcome sightings from within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, as well as adjacent areas such as the Coral Sea, Gulf of Carpentaria and southern Queensland region.
The Queensland Government is a partner in the Sightings Network program.
