Reef Ecologic hosted a multi-faceted workshop as part of the conference sharing knowledge and educating the girls from across the region in marine ecology, citizen science activities and methods and techniques to help rehabilitate reef environments. The session started with marine scientist Nathan Cook providing an introduction to coral reef ecology and the challenges facing these fragile habitats. After this short introduction students broke into smaller groups to learn about different aspects of reef conservation.
Reef Ecologic recognized as 2022 Best for the World™ B Corp™ in recognition of exceptional positive impact on environment.
The Reef Citizen Science and Leadership Workshop brought together people to learn about different citizen science techniques and how to use them practically around the reefs. The most valuable aspect of the trip for me, was taking the time to step out of the day-to-day life with like-minded people and be reminded together of how lucky we are. We only have a limited number of days on this planet, so take these opportunities to appreciate our situation, enjoy the beautiful environment we have here in Australia and try to give something back.
