Reef HQ volunteers donate their time and considerable talents to help Reef HQ expand and improve services to visitors and the local community.
The volunteer program enables the local community to become more involved with the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.There are 2 main programs for volunteers.
The coral reef exhibit (CRE) at reefHQ is the world?s largest coral reef Aquarium and with 2.5 Million L it is approximately the size of 50 family swimming pools. The CRE is unique not only because of its sheer size, but because it is open to the elements. This means the many thousand reef organisms that are housed there receive natural day and moonlight and experience rain and storm events like natural reefs do.
Reef HQ is grateful to generous citizens and companies who have, and continue to, support us in our efforts to inspire all to care for the Great Barrier Reef.
Reef HQ in Townsville, was founded as a Bicentennial Project with funding provided by the both the Federal and Queensland Governments, plus a significant component from local fund raising. Operating as a not-for-profit organisation, Reef HQ continues to rely on support from corporate and community citizens. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available to suit the requirements of individual sponsors.
