Great Barrier Reef Foundation
Human influences resulted in a 50% decline in coral cover* between 1985 - 2012.

* This does not take into account some coral recovery in recent years, or the global bleaching event in early 2016.
Everyone’s actions, whether big or small, to reduce threats and restore condition will improve the Reef's outlook.
The Foundation is uniquely placed to the lead the collaboration of scientists, Reef managers, business, government and philanthropists to develop the knowledge and solutions needed to protect and restore our precious Great Barrier Reef for future generations.
The projects they fund deliver impact - they go to the heart of protecting and restoring the Great Barrier Reef.
