As 2011 comes to an end, please consider a tax-deductable gift to REEF so that we can continue our cutting edge marine conservation programs. We rely on your

donation to fund programs that further our understanding of ocean eco-systems. For those members who have already contributed during our Winter Fundraising Campaign, a big thank you! If you haven't yet, donate today using our secure online form, call REEF HQ at 305-852-0030, or mail in your donation to REEF, PO Box 246, Key Largo, FL 33037. Members who donate $250 or more will receive this limited edition, signed print of a beautiful Peppermint Basslet.

Your contribution will ensure that REEF is able to take advantage of the latest technology to protect our ocean ecosystems. In 2011, we launched online "Fishinars" through the Volunteer Fish Survey Project to educate our members and ensure our data are more accurate than ever before. Through live-feed video, we are connecting classrooms to underwater footage of Grouper Moon in the field. Through satellite linked drifters, we are also tracking larvae to study Grouper Moon spawning behavior. Additionally, we are continuing to grow our Lionfish Program through regional collecting and handling workshops, removal derbies, and cutting edge research. With your assistance, we are able to continue these innovative educational programs and maintain the highest scientific standards. Thank you again for your donation, and we wish you a happy holiday season!
