Dear all

Apologies for cross postings. As most of you will be aware, the Great
Barrier Reef (GBR) has been experiencing very hot temperatures this summer
and bleaching is being reported from many reefs spread from the southern to
the northern GBR. For the latest update on what we know so far, please visit
the update at: http://www.gbrmpa.gov.au/corp_site/bleaching/index.html

We (the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and the Australian
Institute of Marine Science) are very keen to receive reports on what people
are seeing out there. If you have been out somewhere on the GBR, can you
please take the time to fill out an on-line bleaching form at the above web
site? Feedback is provided in the form of weekly updates on a map showing
all reports to date. Thanks to all those who have filled out forms so far.
Please keep them coming!

Best regards
