Virtual Reef Diver project selected as the 2018 ABC Science annual citizen science project!

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 p...
