The Sea World Research and Rescue Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to funding and promoting independent marine research projects. Through research and rescue activities, the Foundation aims to help build our knowledge and appreciation of the wondrous variety of life in our oceans.
The Sea World Research and Rescue Foundation Inc (SWRRFI) has been a major benefactor of marine research in Australia since incorporation in 1993.
The Foundation seeks to encourage and assist marine sciences and to date has supported over 140 research projects relating to aspects of the biology of marine vertebrates selected by our Scientific Advisory Committee.
In February each year the Foundation calls for expressions of interest. A limited number of projects are short-listed on the basis of their high scientific merit and likely contribution to the Foundation's objectives.
