REEF is excited to launch a new Educator in the Field REEF Fellowship for teachers and other educators. This fellowship, to be awarded annually, will enable a qualified educator to participate in a REEF Field Survey Trip during the summer. They will join other volunteer citizen scientists to learn marine life identification and ocean ecology, and conduct fish population surveys while scuba diving or snorkeling as part of the REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project. Following the Field Survey Trip, the Fellow will stay involved as a member of the REEF Education Advisory Panel.

The 2023 Educator in the Field Fellow will join REEF’s Field Survey Trip to Roatan, Honduras, July 15-23, 2023.

Applications will open January 1, 2023 and will close March 1, 2023. The selected educator will be notified no later than March 15.
