The Great Barrier Reef are delighted to announce the Accelerator Grants: Community Climate Action for the Reef has been launched.

The goal of this grant round is to accelerate community climate action for the Reef, championed by Traditional Owners, community organisations, local councils, local businesses, and youth.

Applications Close: 13 September 2023

Find out more and apply.

For your chance to win $100 gift voucher complete a very brief Social impacts of Reef Stewardship Survey to understand and showcase the impacts of your work on the Reef and communities.

Additionally, for every survey completed, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation will contribute $3-5 back to your organisation!

The programs and initiatives that your organisation delivers have significant positive impacts, not only for the Reef but also on the knowledge, capacity, motivation, and wellbeing of the individuals involved.

To further enhance our understanding and share these positive impacts, the University of Queensland is conducting an applied research project (with input from a small voluntary group of RTP community partners) and we need your support to help us gather this valuable information.

GBRF need at least 300 people to complete the survey!
