Description

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation was established in 1999 to help protect and preserve the Great Barrier Reef. The foundation raises and manages funds for scientific efforts on the Great Barrier Reef carried out by Australian research institutions to conserve, restore and protect the reef. This includes understanding human and natural causes of changes to the reef, and promoting human welfare for reef dependent populations. The foundation was formed in response to the bleaching event of 1998.
