REEF is proud to be a part of the "Protect Our Reefs" program in Florida.

As a Florida driver, you can help make research, education and conservation happen. Drive the plate that helps fund research, education and conservation and you’ll be helping preserve Florida’s unique underwater beauty. When you purchase this plate from your tax collector, $25 goes to support reef research, education and conservation. And as you drive, your reef plate helps remind other Floridians about this unique Florida treasure.


REEF is a member of the Marine Fish Conservation Network.
