The Great Barrier Reef Foundation was established in 2000 for the purpose of funding vital research to protect and preserve Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef is made up of 2,900 reefs along 2,300km of Queensland's coastline. It is visible from space and one of the largest United Nations World Heritage areas.
The Reef contributes an estimated $6 billion annually to the Australian economy and generates more than 67,000 jobs.
Focusing on innovative thinking, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation has – with its partners in business, science and philanthropy – raised almost $40 million for research.
