Project Description
Reefwatch is a pilot program aimed at gathering quality information on the status of intertidal rocky shores on the Central Coast. It is based on methods used in South Australia and uses several different survey techniques. The project engages teachers and students from local high schools, as well as members of the community, to voluntarily monitor a particular rock platform four times a year.

Main Objectives
The primary objectives of the Reefwatch Project are to:

  • engage and educate individuals and community groups about the ecology of intertidal rocky shores 
  • obtain long-term baseline data on intertidal rocky areas that will provide assistance in decision-making and management
  • characterise flora and fauna communities living on intertidal rocky platforms
  • determine the nature and magnitude of changes in species populations and communities over time
