Reef Ecologic have been integral members of the team that are currently delivering the Museum of Underwater Art (MOUA) to the Great Barrier Reef. This innovative project aims to raise awareness and educate Reef visitors and, by extension, the worldwide community, the challenges coral reefs are facing and what we can do to support their ongoing resilience.
Reef Ecologic’s Whitsundays Tourism Recovery Project will lead in the design, creation and installation of underwater and inter-tidal interpretive art pieces across the Whitsunday region, coral restoration and educational activities. These projects are designed to support tourism in the region.
We are raising awareness about the health of our oceans and what we can all do to support its ongoing health and resilience, we are inviting people to make a pledge to do something this World Oceans Day.
We are challenging people to tell us
1. Why they love the ocean and
2. What they will do to protect it.
“If we are looking to protect natural environments, we need to look after ourselves first.” Local yoga teacher Tracey Uber Cook and marine scientist Nathan Cook from Reef Ecologic, a local marine consultancy, are addressing the issue of personal well being and Reef health.
The purpose of the June 2017 expedition by Reef Ecologic, Arup and PIPA was to develop a plan to sustainably manage the resources to preserve the natural, biological, heritage and socio-economic values of this remote location. The sustainability plan will enable the development of eco-tourism and research opportunities in this diverse and unique location.
