Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef

Capricorn Enterprise is a proud participant of Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef and is committed to working with our members and the wider industry, to embrace the potential of this unique and timely opportunity.

Our industry’s ability to engage on a personal level with visitors to the region is our strength. Through a unified message we can bring optimism back to the conversation about the Great Barrier Reef, and help drive actions to secure its future for generations to come.

This week we welcome Andy Ridley, CEO from Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef in region to present at our Members Networking Night and visit our SGBR operators on the Capricorn Coast, Great Keppel Island and Pumpkin Island. 

Citizens of the GBR ( will officially launch in September 2017 and has partners including (but not limited to):

Citizens of the GBR have produced a Tourism Trade Toolkit – a suite of assets with everything you’ll need to become Citizens-ready.  We recognise the toolkit as an evolving asset, and one that we will continue to enhance.  We have received some feedback and are implementing changes – and we encourage your feedback as you implement it within your businesses.  Let us know what is missing and what we can provide to ensure promoting Citizens is as simple as possible.
