There are just a few weeks remaining in the year, and if you have any REEF surveys that you haven't yet entered, it's an excellent time to dust them off and submit them into our online database. As a REEF surveyor, each survey you conduct can help make a difference in the health of the ocean, but these data must be submitted to the REEF database to make an impact! The marine life information collected by REEF volunteers is used by scientists and researchers protect our oceans. 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of the REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project, and to celebrate, you can take part in the 30 for 30 Challenge. If you conduct and submit 30 surveys in in 2023, you are eligible to receive a special Conservation Challenge sticker and a dry bag! Click here for more info.

Did you know that your REEF surveys never expire? That means it is never too late to submit your survey data, no matter how old your surveys may be.
