Junior Reef Keeper Program

Junior Reef Keeper Program, Great Barrier Reef

Our Junior Reef Keeper Program aims to foster the next generation’s love for the environment, and encourage them on their path to becoming real reef warriors!

Young people aged 6* to 17 years have the opportunity to learn more about the reef ecosystem and all of its cool critters, while contributing to REAL research that goes towards protecting the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Learn how to identify and classify marine animals, how to survey and monitor corals and reef health, and how to become a leader who shares their knowledge and skills with family, friends, peers and the wider community.

JUNIOR Reef Keepers will complete conservation missions and come up with creative projects to support reef conservation and share reef health messages with the community. They will be the first to hear about school holiday programs and unique and fun educational opportunities.
