The CReefs Lizard Island 2010 expedition has come to a close. Although the work will continue back at the museums and universities, the field trip is over.
 
The expedition has given Australian and international marine scientists the opportunity to contribute significantly to our knowledge of the plants and animals that live on coral reefs, and the wider picture of what lives in the world's oceans.
 
Many of the scientists who participated in the Lizard Island expedition, as well as some new participants, will visit Heron Island for three weeks in November this year for the final expedition of the CReefs Australia project.
