ReefBlitz 2017

ReefBlitz is an annual event that lets you contribute to a snapshot of catchment and reef health, and get involved in practical actions to help look after Queensland's reefs.
ReefBlitz 2017 was the 4th consecutive year of ReefBlitz events. Huge congrats to our 716 participants who lent a hand to survey reefs, collect marine debris, monitor mangroves and more, in a series of events along the Queensland Coast. From catchment to coral, citizen scientists collected more than 20,000 data points relevant to reef health! Our amazing members and partners delivered 34 events across Queensland to engage communities in citizen science for the Reef during the month of October (Ok and a few re-scheduled events in November due to crazy weather)!
