Join the largest group of naturalists in the world and share knowledge about the Great Barrier Reef. We are encouraging all people to connect with the ocean between 1 and 8 June, 2022 and share photographs about marine life. If you are a beach walker, citizen scientist, snorkelers, SCUBA diver, fisher, tourist, Master Reef Guide, reef ranger, students or photographer we would love to see your photograph of marine life and for you to share with the INaturalist community. It is a simple step to join at https://www.inaturalist.org/signup. We are particularly interested in observations of fish, sharks, corals, shells, turtles and threatened species.

We will provide a pre-event online briefing and training for registered participants and organisations on the 31 May. We will provide daily updates. Poster available for you to add your logo and share on social media
