NO BARRIER TOO GREAT FOR REEF GUIDE ROLES

TOURISM operators have been called upon to nominate employees for an interesting role based on the reef.

Great Barrier Reef Marine Park’s Fiona Merida said nominations are now open for the fourth cohort of master reef guides.

The successful candidates will be experienced and qualified industry professionals that go above and beyond.

“The primary role of a master reef guide is to deliver educational talks and incredible experiences to visitors,” Ms Merida said.

“Reef guides are focused on environmental sustainability, stewardship and will ensure that visitors leave minimal to no impact on the reef.”
