Help protect our reefs


Healthy coral reefs could vanish in our lifetime.

Our planet is a blue planet, with over two thirds of Earth covered by oceans. Coral reefs are vital to our planet’s health and are home to over a quarter of all marine life, but the climate and biodiversity crises have resulted in half the world’s coral being lost already.

With your help, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation is restoring and protecting critical Reef Wildlife Sanctuaries in the Whitsundays. Your donation means reefs and the threatened wildlife that call them home can do more than just survive, but can flourish once again.

A coastal treasure worth saving.

The delicate reefs that support life across the Whitsundays form part of the largest living structure on the planet. As nurseries and homes for precious wildlife, they provide crucial nutrients to the food web and protect our coastlines from erosion.

You can act today and be part of the largest collective effort to plant new corals on degraded reefs, sow seagrass seeds to create hectares of lush seagrass meadows and other vital protection work. The work we do in one wildlife sanctuary has positive flow-on effects to other connected reefs.

When you donate, you can choose to be kept up-to-date on our restoration projects, as well as ways you can get involved. Your support plays a critical role in helping our Reef repair and grow.
