The Virginia Chadwick Memorial Foundation

The Virginia Chadwick Memorial Foundation was established to carry on the work of the late Virginia Chadwick who was the Chair of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority for eight years (1999 -2007). During this time, Virginia's leadership resulted in many significant achievements in the Great Barrier Reef, including worldwide acclaim for the rezoning of the Marine Park in 2004.

The Foundation builds on Virginia's achievements, through a range of activities including environmental education and partnerships, Indigenous opportunities, networking and knowledge sharing especially in regard to the Great Barrier Reef but also other coral reefs and associated ecosystems around the world.

The Foundation supports a range of activities and initiatives which aim to systematically promote environmental awareness, monitoring and stewardship.
