Greetings from steamy south Florida! We have been busy as rockmover wrasses here at REEF HQ: we finished up two major artificial reef monitoring projects, completed the 11th consecutive year of zone monitoring at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, pulled off the 16th  successful Great Annual Fish Count and welcomed two new interns, Lauren and Erin, into the fabulous fun of fish watching. In the “real world,” our valuable members have kept REEF projects humming by forming their own local REEF chapters and as DEMA approaches, REEF invites you to learn more about our educational role at the world’s largest dive travel and trade show. Here’s hoping you’ve had a splendid summer and are looking fondly forward to the next time you can join REEF on a Field Survey. To our student members: happy heading back to school!
