Oceanguard • Restoring the Balance
Oceanguard is planning many activities and events to raise awareness and funding to implement the plan as soon as possible. The most direct way to help Oceanguard is by raising funds for these activities to help restore the ecological balance of the Great Barrier Reef and stop the ongoing plagues of Crown of Thorn Starfish. All activities below need your support to keep the plan effectively moving forward.
Education via Social Media
Oceanguard aims to involve everyone concerned with saving the Great Barrier Reef globally via websites, facebook, twitter and various other platforms. Please help us spread the word by inviting your friends and colleagues to your favourite groups.
Engaging the Public
Reefaid - The Concert
A major music concert is planned for next year to be beamed by satellite around the globe, to promote the plight of the Great Barrier Reef and the preservation of our oceans. This concert will fund a rescue plan to stem the ongoing destruction of the Great Barrier Reef by the Crown of Thorns Starfish and restore the reef's natural balance .

the Guardians of the Reef

Touring Art Exhibition
A major audio-visual art exhibition of Australia's national treasure - the Great Barrier Reef - is planned to tour Australia's major cities, and later the world. The purpose of the exhibition is about saving coral reefs and preserving ocean life. Presented on interactive LED touch-screens featuring the most advanced audio-visual technology. Created by Melbourne artist, Frantz Kantor.
The Great Barrier Reef ecosystem's future existence is under immediate threat. We are planning a documentary voyage, commencing in 2018, to capture the magnificent beauty of the reef before further damage occurs.
This ambitious expedition is expected to take two years. The voyage will also cater for eco-tourism which opens up the educational outreach to an international audience. Daily online web and social media updates of the voyage will benefit school studies and public outreach globally.
Ride for the Reef
Follow 12 cyclists live online as they ride 16,000 km's around Australia to raise support for a rescue plan for the Great Barrier Barrier Reef before it's too late. The lead rider will be an international name and for some light relief the squad, made up of “characters” will include a zany comedian dressed in Lycra called STERLING MAN.
