What You Can Expect

Reef Teach marine biologists are not only great coral reef scientists but are highly skilled and experienced presenters; all full-time staff are also qualified Master Reef Guides.

They use storytelling, humour and engagement mixed with their deep reef ecology knowledge and understanding to share the GBR and its inhabitants story with you. The GBR is so diverse there is no way that every element can be spoken about, but you are more than welcome to ask questions throughout the talk – in fact we encourage it. We even give you Reef Teach’s contact details so that you can continue to ask questions for the rest of your life. Once you have been to Reef Teach you have your own marine biologist for life.

By the end of an evening at Reef Teach, you’ll know what corals actually are and how they have made the GBR – you will be surprised. You will know about animals you did not even know existed plus their stories – often verging on science fiction. You will know the truth about the future of the GBR and its current situation.

When you get to the reef, you’ll be thrilled by the amount of life you will actually see and what you know. Like;

  • Common fish and other animals
  • Cleaning stations
  • Corals and their algae
  • Nemo and his dad!

During the presentations you will also learn about some of the threats to coral reefs, both natural and caused by humans, such as Crown-of-Thorns sea stars, coral bleaching, and marine debris, and discover heartbreaking facts about man’s disregard for this extraordinary underwater environment.

Your Very Own
Marine Biologist

All Reef Teach presenters are our own active Marine Biologists, all stories are based on true events with no fisherman's tales or exaggerations...

Although we take our subject very seriously, at Reef Teach we generally don't take ourselves too seriously. Whilst learning about some the best secrets and fascinating topics of the Great Barrier Reef, our presenters also expose the lighter-side of Marine Biology with their personal stories and tales of their experiences on the reef.

Our marine biologists and conservationists are happy to answer your questions about marine life, photography, snorkeling and diving, etc.

We encourage all visitors to The Great Barrier Reef to follow eco-tourism guidelines and “take only pictures and memories, and leave only bubbles”!
