Support RLS

At Reef Life Survey, we depend heavily on the support and goodwill of many people and organisations.

Your support will allow 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 fine.

We see our contribution as the best hope for safeguarding our marine heritage relative to business as usual.


Your donation provides 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, communication and education.
Donations in Australia are tax deductible.

Amount is in Australian Dollars and will be converted to your country's currency
