Did you know that REEF has marine life identification curricula for 15 different areas? Hot off the press are the latest, brand new curricula: Fishes of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS), and Fishes of the Red Sea. These instructor-led curricula include everything you need to teach divers and snorkelers about some of the most commonly encountered species in a given area.
Each course comes with an easy-to-use teaching curriculum to train students in identification and REEF survey methodology, a USB Flash drive with a slideshow of fish images, survey materials including a slate, underwater paper, and photo ID card, plus a Level 2 Surveyor quiz.
We have also created new survey paper and starter kits for FGBNMS and the Red Sea, plus a Red Sea Fishes photo ID card. There is a wide array of underwater survey paper available for the various locations throughout the tropical Pacific, as well as our other survey regions. Check out the REEF Surveyor Toolbox to see all of the materials for a specific region. Curricula and other survey materials can be purchased online at www.REEF.org/store.
