In partnership with Australian Geographic Society and GBR Legacy
10 Nights | Departing Cairns 30 June 2021 | Onboard Coral Discoverer
We have partnered with the Australian Geographic Society for a once-in-a-lifetime nature conservation experience on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. This special Citizen Science departure will explore some of the most remote edges of the outer reef, discover beautiful and complex habitats, and find sanctuary in the peaceful solitude of the Coral Sea.
Hosted by some of Australia’s most accomplished reef experts including Dr Dean Miller from the Australian Geographic Society and Dr Charlie Veron, widely known as the ‘Godfather of coral’, you will participate in real scientific research projects.
The Citizen Science component of the expedition will be curated by this expert team, and includes a focus on the annual migration of the dwarf Minke whales – with the opportunity to swim eye to eye with these magnificent creatures – and coral surveying and identification for the world-first Living Coral Biobank project.
With full access to the most knowledgeable and respected Marine Scientists in the world and the opportunity to witness their expertise, energy and passion, this expedition offers a rare chance to learn and make a difference in coral conservation. $500 from your fare benefits GBR Legacy.
