Tour Overview

This marine conservation program offers students the opportunity to assist Ocean 2 Earth with an established reef monitoring program. 

Students help a team of marine biologists and other industry professionals to support long term coral health in the Great Barrier Reef and join forces with marine debris initiatives to clean up the Reef. Students will contribute in providing a healthy environment for marine species to flourish. 
Students will also participate in other conservation activities and environmental research which  contribute to the preservation of far north Queensland eco-systems.

There are three key project components:
