Coral reefs around the world face unprecedented coral bleaching and degradation. Now more than ever, CoralWatch needs your help to engage the local and global community in reef conservation. CoralWatch is a not-for-profit citizen science project based at the Queensland Brain Institute, The University of Queensland. CoralWatch helps non scientists understand and support reef conservation practices by using simple tools that provide communities, school groups, tourists, dive shops and policy makers with accessible information and the opportunity to participate in the collection of scientific data on coral bleaching. Find out more about CoralWatch at www.coralwatch.org
A global coral bleaching event is happening now and CoralWatch desperately needs your support to help mobilise volunteers around the world to monitor this event and engage communities in reef education and conservation. Your fundraising efforts will make a real difference and every dollar helps.
