2. Educate and Spread Awareness

3. Allow marine biologists to
expand their field of research 1. ECO is an internationally
recognised brand

sustained 1. Guarantee that the reef is constantly looked after

2. Preserves the natural habitat

3. Preserves the Biodiversity THE FUTURE CONCLUSION AIMS 1. Assess general reef health and highlight potential
problems

2. Provides early warning information

3. Improve the local management, update reef tours
and products for their visitors. HOW DO THEY DO IT? 1. Long term information is gathered in partnership
with a range of stakeholders

Health
Environmental measurements

Know concerns about the resilience of the Reef

Helps to design tourism activities that limit
damage to the reef AIMS 1. Education from the top down

2. Awareness for the Reef and it's
importance in our lives WHAT THEY DO 1. Organise school projects over a period
of weeks

2. Writing & preparation of educational
material for these courses

3. Offer all year 7 classes in the region a
field trip at Low Isles PEOPLE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT HOWEVER... Despite the current limitations, Reef Biosearch is doing a commendable job to work with these limitations 1. Reliance on Volunteer Work
eg) Tourism Weekly Monitoring
Surveys

2. Quality of Work may be affected Quicksilver is a huge company and may be unable ensure that every branch is operating within the boundaries of cooperate social responsibility. 1. The sheer size of the Great
Barrier Reef which is roughly
the length of Japan

2. Supervision and monitoring
cannot cover all areas of the Reef

3. The benefits vary according to
intensity of research or
surveillance ORGANISATION What WE think SWITCHING TO SOLAR ENERGY EXPANSION OF EDUCATION
PROGRAMS Tackles: The problem of GHG emissions

Requires: Legislation, Commitment and Money

Why it would work: Solar energy is easier to harvest
and the least obstructive to the
natural environment Tackles: The limited education programs in place

Requires: The Australian education system to devise a
new syllabus that extends beyond the
primary schools

Why it would work: Economic gains and environmental
sustainability of the Reef SUMMARY WHEN IT IS FULFILLED WHAT'S NEXT Reef Biosearch could help other countries by:

1. Sharing of knowledge

2. Education of the Reef's importance 1. Meeting the expectations of CSR it would ensure
that the maximum potential of the project is
realised

2. Safeguards the Reef

3. People will learn to love and care for the Reef
because they would understand and know it Bibliography THANK YOU :) SO WE WOULD LIKE
TO SAY... WE HAVE COME TO THE END OF OUR PRESENTATION Done By:
Karen & Bridget Continue what they are currently doing for the next few years to come Reef Biosearch Under Quicksilver Aims Tourism+Education+Research
