A global threat.


Saving the Great Barrier Reef, one pound at a time.

The Great Barrier Reef (“the Reef”) is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It’s the largest living structure on Earth and covers an incredible 344,440 km2—about the size of Italy! In fact, the Reef is so big that it can actually be seen from space.

The Reef is also one of the most complex and biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. It supports nearly 9,000 aquatic species including:

  • 1,625 species of fish (about 10% of all the world’s fish species)
  • 600+ types of hard and soft corals
  • 215 bird species
  • 133 varieties of sharks and rays
  • 30 species of whales and dolphins
  • 14 species of sea snakes
  • 6 out of 7 of the world’s marine turtle species

This does not include the vast numbers of plankton, microbe, and fungi species that also call the Reef home. Abundant marine life makes the Reef a source of incredible fascination that draws about 2 million visitors from around the world every year. But this global icon is also facing a global threat.

The cumulative effects of climate change, poor water quality, coastal development, ocean plastic, overfishing, and extreme weather events are weakening the Reef’s resilience and ability to recover, which impacts the entire marine ecosystem that relies on it to survive. Together, we can help change that.

The Great Barrier Reef supports nearly 9,000 aquatic species and covers an area about the size of Italy.

The average global temperature has increased 0.8°C since the 1880s. Prolonged heat stress can lead to mass coral bleaching.

Ocean plastics and other marine debris pollute the fragile reef ecosystem, endanger marine life and stress coral.
