    • Thanks Sean! And this is just the tip of the iceberg, wait ’til you see what else we have up our sleeves 🙂

  1. love the art work and some of the messages but a bit heavy on the lines about humans and our alcohol consumption.

  2. Great stuff you guys!! Very imaginative and quirky method of getting through to the general public!! Very proud of you xx

  3. Stellar beer mats – undoubtedly the best I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen quite some. They’re really really cool and I’m all for the drinkaware messages too – they’re a jovial enough angle on a very important message. Bravo. Congratulations again!

  4. Oh dear. The beer mats look to be about 10 cm by 10 cm, 100 cm2. If so, then there are 100 beer mats per square metre, and there are one hundred million per square km. I fear that someone has got their sums wrong.

    • Thanks for the comment Pascal. As with everything, some things tend to slip under the radar, though at least the revised figure (in excess of 200 billion beermats by a revised calculation!) highlights even more strongly the actual size of the coral reefs. The message of their vast size, I think, has been conveyed to the lay person in either case. Thanks for highlighting this though, we’ll be correcting the slip up in the next round of printing.

  5. I just learned about your neat beermat project from Science magazine.
    There will be an upcoming item celebrating it at my website, SimanaitisSays.com within a couple days.
    Good on ya!

  6. By Any Chance, do you have further posts just like
    this one named, Biodiversity In Our Lives |
    Using novel outreach, we hope to bring biodiversity research to the public in a fun and engaging way.

    ? I would like to read through even far more regarding it.
    Thanks.
