The Great Barrier Reef is a rich and diverse environment that continually challenges science to unravel its mysteries. Citizen science is gaining recognition as a means for public collection of valuable scientific information that can improve reef management outcomes.
Numerous citizen science organisations actively engage community members in scientific research across the Reef's catchments and on the Reef. The Great Barrier Reef Citizen Science Alliance is a network that fosters collaboration, capacity building, advancement and action for citizen science that benefits the Great Barrier Reef.
