Donate to reef life survey


Reef Life Survey Inc. is a charitable organization and depends upon the support and goodwill of many people and organizations. Your financial support allows us to continue the essential work that we do to present the true story of the world's oceans and the life within them.

By accurately describing the condition of the marine environment from a fishes'perspective, we keep managers and politicians honest, testing their claims that 'all is OK'. We see our contribution as the best hope for safeguarding our marine heritage relative to business as usual.

Donations in Australia are tax deductible.

Where does your donation go?

As a non-profit organization, donations provide much needed funding to allow us to survey more areas and ultimately demonstrate the true condition of our marine life. We have no employed staff or office expenses, thanks to our dedicated volunteer support, so all donations are directed to covering the costs of surveys, science communication and education.

Below are just a few of the many projects that your donation will contribute towards.

Species conservation

Help protect some of the most endangered species on the planet, like the Red Handfish (Thymichthys politus).
Reef Life Survey is currently the only organization monitoring the last remaining Red Handfish populations, and continuing the search for other populations.

RLS also represents the only source of information available to identify the true threat status for the Red Handfish and countless other marine species globally. More information is needed to guide appropriate conservation of these vulnerable marine species - but we can't maintain this effort without your help.

A donation to our Species Conservation efforts will support ongoing monitoring surveys and research, allowing us to better understand how to conserve these precious species.
