Citizen science and the Great Barrier Reef

December 26, 2018

This week we talk to Erin Peterson, Project Leader for Virtual Reef Diver, an important initiative that collects critical data on the health of the Great Barrier Reef through imagery. Erin explains how, with the help of everyday citizens, they are collecting and sharing data aimed at protecting and preserving our Great Barrier Reef.

Erin talks to Kendi Burness-Cowan about how this innovative approach is likely to provide more data than ever before on the reef and how you can get involved.
