REEF Field Surveys Trips are a great introduction to marine life identification for new REEF surveyors, and a fun way for experienced surveyors to build their life list while interacting with fellow fish watchers. REEF coordinates Field Surveys to locations throughout our project regions each year. These projects are led by REEF staff and other REEF instructors and feature daily classroom seminars and a full diving schedule.
