Dear REEF Friends,
We are well into our Summer Fundraising Campaign, and on behalf of all of us at REEF, thank you to everyone who has already donated! We are on our way to meeting our goal, but more funds are still needed to ensure our core programs are maintained and continue to grow. These include:
Volunteer Survey Project. The cornerstone of REEF's citizen science programs, divers and snorkelers collect biodiversity and population data on our most important ocean ecosystems. For more information click here.
Invasive Lionfish Research. The Indo-Pacific lionfish invasion is rapidly moving south into the Caribbean, and the initial results of REEF’s on-the-ground work suggest these impacts will be devastating. For more information click here.
Grouper Moon Project. This collaborative research program is studying one of the last remaining spawning aggregations of the endangered Nassau grouper. For more information click here.
Through participation in these important and engaging citizen science programs, our members are truly seeing their dives count:
As you can see, REEF's programs are making a difference, and your contribution is needed to help us continue our important work. Please donate today and help us meet our goal of raising $30,000 in 30 days, thank you!
REEF Executive Director
