Meet Craig McGrogan, an incredibly dedicated environmental educator at Reef HQ Aquarium who for many years has run science workshops, citizen science and ecotourism programs in the heart of tropical north QLD. Reef HQ Aquarium is the National Education Center for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority whose mission is to inspire everyone to protect and conserve the world's largest reef system.
