We are excited to welcome Paul Bonatz to the Golden Hamlet Club, which honors the achievements of those who have conducted and submitted 1,000 REEF surveys as part of the Volunteer Fish Survey Project. As the 47th REEF surveyor to achieve this milestone, Paul's name will be added to a special Golden Hamlet Club plaque that is displayed at the REEF Campus in Key Largo, FL.

Paul conducted his 1,000th survey during a trip to Little Cayman, one of his favorite places to dive. He started doing surveys in 2005 and says, "surveying is like a treasure hunt every time you enter the water." Congratulations Paul, and thank you for your amazing contributions to citizen science.
