It’s true! The Virtual Reef Diver project has been selected as the ABC Science annual citizen science project for 2018! National Science week runs from August 11-18th and the ABC will be actively promoting it through their own channels and those external to the ABC.
As you can imagine, we will need to revamp the website before thousands of citizens visit it and to raise money for that work, our project will be highlighted as part of QUT Giving Day on May 22nd. The project recently received $20,000 to support it and we are challenging 200 donors to collectively donate another $20,000 for Giving Day to bring the project to fruition and recognise the goodwill of citizen scientists to future proof the reef.
Please consider donating to the project – simply select the ‘Great Barrier Reef – Monitoring Through Many Eyes’ project. Every dollar makes a difference!
