Internship

On the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is our planet's greatest natural icon – it is guaranteed to take your breath away. It's a beautiful site that the Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef hope people from around the world can enjoy for many years to come, and they are doing all they can to protect it.

You could have the chance to make your trip to Queensland about more than beach-hopping and tan lines, with an internship in environmental conservation. Applications to be part of this ground-breaking movement to protect the world’s largest living reef are now closed, but you can still experience everything the reef has to offer - check out how here.

Thank you to all those who did apply - we're currently reviewing your applications.

Who are the Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef?

Founder of Earth Hour, Andy Ridley, has now turned his focus to a new movement — Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef, a social movement which aims to unite people from around the world to combat the pressures to the planet’s biodiversity, including how to learn and care about the Great Barrier Reef.  Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef will be the enabler and communicator of global and local action for the Great Barrier Reef, providing a platform that allows people, businesses and communities to connect and mobilise as citizens, working together to secure the future of the Great Barrier Reef and our planet.
