About the organisation

Organisation Name : Great Barrier Reef Foundation

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. More than 2 million people travel to see it each year. It is worth more than $6 billion to the Australian economy and has recently been estimated to be worth more than $50 billion internationally by Deloitte Access Economics.
