Reef Ambassador Application (Whitsunday Sept - October 2020)
Thanks for your interest in becoming a Reef Ambassador!

Long-term citizen science reef health monitoring, and community engagement is the core of what we do. As such, this program supports regional capacity building and we are seeking volunteers who live locally and wish to stay involved over multiple events, projects and seasons.

We only offer a limited number of training courses each year and whilst we already think you are awesome for wanting to get involved, unfortunately, we cannot accept every applicant. Your application will be reviewed and we'll advise you of the status. Don't worry, there are plenty of additional opportunities to get involved!
