‘Kerry Sea Designs aims to support organisations working to protect and educate people about a jewel in Australia’s crown, the Great Barrier Reef.’ The GBR is listed under all four natural World Heritage criteria for its outstanding universal value. It stretches 2,300 kilometres along the Queensland coast and includes over 2,900 reefs, and around 940 islands and cays.
‘Since my first dive at Butterfly Bay, Hook Island, the Reef has been such a huge source of inspiration for me. I naturally want to help protect it.
The Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
Kerry Sea donates 20% of all sales via the Foundation website to help support their fabulous work.
Kerry Sea Designs has recently partnered with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. They are the lead charity dedicated to protecting the Great Barrier Reef through funding solutions grounded in science, technology, engineering and on-ground action to ensure long-term conservation.
Lizard Island Research Station
Kerry Sea makes an annual donation to the station.
‘I visited the station several years ago and remember a research project which was working out how fast Coral trout grow, by examining growth rings in the bones in their ears. Amazing stuff! We know so little about the Reef and the research station does a lot to uncover some of the mysteries surrounding it’.
The Lizard Island Research Station is owned and operated by the Australian Museum. Resarchers there conduct about 100 different research projects each year. From the research work conducted at Lizard Island, more than 1,200 scientific publications have been produced by Australian and international researchers since the Station first started in 1973.
Kerry Sea sponsors ‘Hector’, who represents the endangered green turtles.
‘Sponsorship is a great way to give regularly to help an excellent organization to work consistently to help protect the reef’
With more than 50 years’ experience at an international level, and more than 25 years of operation in Australia, WWF is the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organisation. 6 out of seven of the worlds species of marine turtles are found on the Great Barrier Reef. They are being affected by pesticides and plastics washing into reef waters.
