This year, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of REEF’s cornerstone program, the Volunteer Fish Survey Project. Since the first surveys were conducted in Key Largo, Florida, in 1993, more than 15,000 citizen scientists have participated in this monumental program. REEF volunteers have helped create the world’s largest database of marine life sightings, containing more than 225,000 surveys collected in oceans all over the world. At the heart of REEF are our members, who make everything we do possible. Our community of 70,000 ocean stewards make a difference in the marine environment through conservation actions and financial support. We hope you will join us this summer in celebrating 25 years of citizen science, and from all of us at REEF, thank you for your support and dedication to marine conservation.
