REEF is made up of passionate members who champion for our oceans and contribute their time and talents to preserving our environment. Many have been members for years and a few recently departed, before their time. We gratefully acknowledge these individuals and their family’s desire to recognize the importance of REEF in their lives by designating REEF as a recipient of donations in lieu of flowers.

In addition to designating REEF to be their choice of memoriam, Michael’s family and friends contributed to have a recognition plaque installed in his honor along our native plants trail at REEF Headquarters in Key Largo, FL.
