We can help you acquire and use the information you need to understand and solve real-world environmental in an engaged and sustainable way. We work with businesses and government agencies to design, review and implement scientifically robust monitoring programs.
Reef Ecologic staff have initiated citizen science projects to increase understanding of marine protected species and sharks. The Great Australian Shark Count reported over 12,000 sightings of 10 species of sharks including the Coral Sea during a two year period and won accolades for their partnerships and involvement.
