They say there are plenty of fish in the sea, and when you adopt one of REEF’s Conservation Creatures, you are helping to protect those species for the future. REEF Conservation Creatures are stuffed animals depicting iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life.

You can chose to simply purchase the plush ($10), or symbolically adopt a Conservation Creature ($40) and help further REEF's marine conservation mission. Your adoption comes complete with the plush, a personalized adoption certificate, sticker, and animal fact sheet that provides information about the critter's habitat, characteristics, potential threats, and global distribution in REEF's survey regions.

Conservation Creatures make a great gift for the special diver or marine enthusiast in your life. There's something for everyone - many of REEF's survey regions are represented in our Conservation Creature selection, so you can choose an animal found in in your favorite dive spot.
