This work is funded by the public via direct donations. There are now four usual methods of donation depending on the needs of the donor: Patreon, Bank Transfer, Stripe & PayPal. The email to use for PayPal is

Bank: St George
Account Name:'Rose Williams'
Branch Number:112-908
Account Number: 485 746 256

Some people prefer to donate via Bank Transfer: bank transfer either as a one off payment or at regular intervals as then this avoids the fee to me that is charged by Patreon or for other personal reasons. It has the benefit of not having to sign up to a new platform. It can be a good idea to contact me and let me know if you are concerned the details you entered aren't correct - to ensure your money reaches me as intended.


For people who just want a quick way to send money without signing up for anything or visiting a banking site, Stripe allows this via these buttons. The amount is set and is a one-off payment using credit card details. If you put in a valid email address then you should get a receipt. You should see on your bank statement details. The Stripe platform processes all financial information for a secure transation.

Privacy and your donation

Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. In order to avoid breaching people's sense of privacy, unless I am directly contacted about a donation by the donor, I do not thank them unless having a direct conversation about a donation.

Having said this, most people become donors when they read that someone they respect suggests they do. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share my work with your networks. While I am yet to receive a minimum wage for what I do I want people to know that I am grateful for both the financial and moral support I receive.

Grants, Ministers and Portfolios in this data relate to the period prior to the 30 March resuffle. If my work receives adequate funding, grants awarded after that period will be added after those decisions are made & as time permits. Ministry & Portfolio names will be updated at that time.

PurposeThe objective of the Reef Guardian Community and Stewardship grants (the grants) is to support locally relevant stewardship and research projects which provide accessible opportunities for the community to contribute to caring for the Reef. The grants aim to foster collaboration between community groups, Local Marine Advisory Committees, schools and councils to identify and collaborate on projects that will positively influence the values of the Great Barrier Reef (the Reef). Activities supported by the grants are a contribution to the investment in delivering on-ground stewardship actions that support the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan outcomes and targets. The grants will also support a number of initiatives identified with Great Barrier Reef Blueprint for Resilience including: Delivering on-ground actions to enhance resilience; Empowering people to be part of the solution; and Fostering change.
