In what ways do you participate with REEF’s main programs?
At Amoray Dive Center LLC, professional scientists teach various REEF programs as part of the new Amory Marine Conservation Team (AMCT). Guests may participate in the REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project and Invasive Species Program courses as well as conduct fish survey dives alongside a team of professional marine biologists. AMCT is the only dive operator in Key Largo with Ph.D. level scientists available for guided programs and lectures.
What other actions do you take to promote marine conservation?
Amoray Dive Center teaches REEF educational programs and shares other conservation information about programs and opportunities with guests. They invite divers and snorkelers to join their science team in participating in scientific research by helping to collect data and information. AMCT also promotes conservation and environmental awareness to the general public through social media.
