Last Friday, April 29, the REEF community came together in an amazing show of support for marine conservation. More than 100 REEF members donated during our second-annual Give BIG for the Oceans celebration, helping us to not only meet, but exceed our fundraising goal. We want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who supported REEF during Give BIG for the Oceans. Your gift, no matter how large or small, powers our citizen science, research, and education programs. We're also very thankful to the Pelton Charitable Foundation and an anonymous supporter, who generously matched our Give BIG for the Oceans contributions.

If you donated during Give BIG for the Oceans, keep an eye on your mailbox. As a special thank you, everyone who gave April 29 will receive a signed 5"x7" print of a reef scene in Indonesia, photographed by REEF Co-Founder Ned DeLoach.
