Reef & Rainforest

Research Centre

Delivering solutions for the tropics

Welcome to The RRRC

The Reef and Rainforest Research Centre (RRRC) is an enterprising Australian based not-for-profit organisation. Its purpose is to build the scientific knowledge base to underpin the conservation and sustainable development agenda in Tropical Queensland and beyond. We work at the intersection of conservation, Government policy development and community economic development in the tropics, providing services and promoting innovative solutions and community well being.

Across our portfolio of activity, the RRRC aims to translate science-based ecological knowledge into improved environmental outcomes, increased local and regional wealth and create regional jobs.

The results of the RRRC are already being used by more than 38 organisations, including the Australian and Queensland Governments, regional natural resource management groups, local governments, tourism industry, agricultural groups, fishing industry, conservation organisations and indigenous bodies.
