Reef Guardian Schools and Sea Country Guardians

Overview

The Reef Guardian School and Sea Country Guardians Programs are an initiative of The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. These programs focus on schools and communities participating in environmental initiatives that promote sustainable living and investigation of issues that affect the Great Barrier Reef to foster environmental stewardship and awareness in young people.

The Sea Country Guardians Program is an extension of the Reef Guardian Schools Program targeted towards developing a culture of care for the Great Barrier Reef in Indigenous communities. The community-led program, aims to connect young people to the environment through cultural knowledge linked to environmental science and to develop the skills required for future leaders and managers of the community.
