Welcome to the Australian Coral Reef Society

Founded in 1922 the Australian Coral Reef Society (ACRS) is the worlds’ oldest organization concerned with the study and conservation of Australia’s coral reefs. The ACRS not only celebrates the natural beauty of coral reefs, but through its 300+ membership fosters a new generation of up and coming reef scientists, and provides objective advice to policymakers to secure the long-term future of coral reefs. Now, more than ever, coral reefs need our support. We welcome your involvement, so why not join, or make a tax-deductible donation to the ACRS. With your support we can better understand, manage and protect these natural wonders for generations to come.
