Reece Fearnside


What energises you at work?
The fact that we get to dive and explore such a variety of reefs and islands along the Great Barrier Reef.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about your job?
People think that we are “taking al the coral from the environment” but that id definitely not the case.

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Going spearfishing, relaxing by the beach or exploring somewhere.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?

Favourite coral and why?
Acans, such beautiful colour variations and are quite structurally strong, relatively easy to collect without damage.

What do you love about the job?
I love that I get to be one of very few people that get to do this job. Its so rewarding in regards to exploring more of the Great Barrier Reef than most people would ever see in their life.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
I’ve always wanted the ability to just stay underwater.
