Your Donations Hard at WorkDonations via LIRRF go straight to funding science and science facilities on the Great Barrier Reef
Lizard Island Reef Research Station (LIRRF) operates with very low costs. Total annual costs run at less than 4% of funds raised – some years considerably less than this figure – and are more than covered by investment earnings from LIRRF’s capital fund.
All fundraising work is performed by LIRRF Trustees on a voluntary basis and all Trustees are substantial donors in their own right. The Australian Museum provides some administrative support. This means that every cent of every new dollar donated through LIRRF will go to funding science and science facilities on the Great Barrier Reef.
All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible in Australia.

Coral reefs need our help
The Great Barrier Reef is a vital part of our ecosystem and a natural wonder beloved by Australians. It is a World Heritage Area that is at risk of being listed as 'in danger' in recognition of the many challenges it faces.
Science and the will for change are the only possible solutions. Our work is helping.
