Marine Conservation

 

Scuba Center is proud to be a REEF Field Station.

REEF's marine conservation and citizen science programs currently operate in the coastal areas of North and Central America, the Caribbean and Hawaii. Our specfic project regions include the Tropical Western Atlantic (Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Gulf of Mexico, and Mid-Atlantic States), Northeast US & Canada (Virginia through Newfoundland), West Coast (California through British Columbia),Tropical Eastern Pacific (Gulf of California to the Galapagos Islands), and Hawaiian Islands (main islands, the northwest chain, and Johnston Atol). | www.reef.org

Reef Environmental Education Foundation is a grass-roots organization that seeks to conserve marine ecosystems by educating, enlisting and enabling divers and other marine enthusiasts to become active ocean stewards and citizen scientists. REEF was founded in 1990, out of growing concern about the health of the marine environment, and the desire to provide the SCUBA diving community a way to contribute to the understanding and protection of marine populations. REEF achieves this goal primarily through its volunteer fish monitoring program, the REEF Fish Survey Project. Participants in the Project not only learn about the environment they are diving in, but they also produce valuable information. Scientists, marine park staff, and the general public use the data that are collected by REEF volunteers.

REEF Field Stations serve as active centers of outreach and education for REEF. Activities include offering REEF Fish Identification Courses and organizing survey dives. Scuba Center also sells underwater paper, slates and related fishwatching materials.
