Welcome to our October e-news! This month’s edition of e-news covers REEF Fest, profiles of one of our REEF members and one of our intern alumni, our Field Survey Trip survey schedule for 2019, information about sustainability changes here at REEF Headquarters, and information about our new website. As I embark on my second month here, it is clear how important our REEF data is scientifically, and how enthusiastic and engaged our members, staff, interns, and volunteers are. I was so glad to meet many of you in person at REEF Fest in September and hope to get to meet more of you this year. I look forward to hearing from you anytime, with your ideas, questions, or comments.
