Ocean Rehab volunteer methodology for Gulf Oil Spill preparation:
(Inventory the shoreline and shallow water habitat with GPS, Transect, and digital photography / videography.)
We were busy in the Keys this past weekend, great job to all that helped with the surveys for Baseline Data at Pennekamp and Florida Bay Key Largo. Thank you Pennekamp and Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for the permissions and quick permits to do our work.
This area is a World Heritage Site, and a Florida Heritage Site.
If you live in the Keys you can download a GPS Locator app to your phone, purchase a 300ft transect measuring tape from a hardware store, pic up a camera and start your inventory. Mangroves, Seagrasses and Coral. (*your property only however unless you have a permit from the FKNMS)
