Sea Women of the Great Barrier Reef

With your help this campaign will raise significant funds for the Coral Sea Foundation to support First Nations women to attend a full Sea Women of the Great Barrier Reef training program.

The Sea Women of the Great Barrier Reef program builds on the success of the award-winning Sea Women of Melanesia training program in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands and operates from the Coral Sea Foundation base on Yunbenun (Magnetic Island) with the consent of the Wulgurukaba traditional owners.

The program was launched earlier this year by The Coral Sea Foundation in ongoing efforts to facilitate training and networking of First Nations women from around the Coral Sea arc.

Program Objectives

  1. To strengthen the connection between Indigenous women and their traditional Great Barrier Reef sea-country.
  2. To empower indigenous women from Great Barrier Reef sea-country with the practical marine science skills and the marine conservation knowledge they need to be more effective advocates for sustainable management of their marine resources, both within their communities and the broader society.
  3. To forge new links between indigenous Sea Women around the Coral Sea arc, from the Great Barrier Reef to the Torres Straits, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands.

Completing the collab, TLC’s beautiful reef inspired artwork and branding has been created by Art Disrupt, a purpose-led creative agency founded by Matt Bray who is also the Creative Director of Comms Declare, the organisation behind the Fossil Ad Ban campaign for a tobacco style ban of fossil fuel advertising.

“Creating the artwork for TLC was a beautiful project we couldn’t say no to. A good beer can help bring people together and It’s a perfect fit with our remit to support action on climate crisis and we love Sea Women of the Great Barrier Reef.” Matt Bray, Founder of Art Disrupt and Creative Director of Comms Declare and the Fossil Ad Ban campaign.

For every limited edition 16-pack of SobahGood TLC you buy, $4 will be contributed to The Coral Sea Foundation to help support a First Nations woman to participate in the Sea Women of the Great Barrier Reef program.
