Caroly’s Notes

Welcome to our November e-News! This month’s edition of e-news covers Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27; an update on our recent Pacific Northwest Advanced Assessment Team project in the San Juan Islands, Washington, led by REEF’s Citizen Science Program Manager Janna Nichols; a profile of REEF member and level 5 expert fish surveyor Callie Mack; information about recent and upcoming lionfish summits and panels from our Invasive Species Program Coordinator Dr. Alli Candelmo; updates about limited availability for our Eastern Caribbean Field Survey Trip this December; and a gentle reminder to consider ways to engage, donate, or purchase items at our online store for your holiday shopping. Of course, our e-News only conveys a fraction of what we have done around here lately, from fish surveys in the Philippines, to environmental education in local schools, to lionfish derbies and other community outreach. As for me, I’m continuing to learn more about our great staff, programs, and partners as we start to prepare for a new year. As always, I look forward to hearing from you anytime with your ideas, questions, or comments.
