Press Release for Ocean Rehab Initiative Inc.
Ocean Rehab Initiative Inc. a Florida and Palm Beach County based Public Charity 501(c)(3) Non-profit will train and certify recreational divers to become “citizen scientists” utilizing local donations and grants.
Our first Reef Check volunteer diver course will train 9 citizen scientists to survey reefs and reef health for Palm Beach County starting on Monday and concluding with certification and graduation on Wednesday.
We will have 2 classroom sessions held at the Village of Tequesta Recreation Center followed by 2 Dives in Palm Beach County from Lake Park Marina.
Reef Check is the world’s largest volunteer coral reef monitoring community with over 150 countries participating and we are proud to have them back.
Reef Check has previously been successful in obtaining globally respected and recognized baseline data in Florida, specific to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in 1997. Follow the link to get the FKNMS/NOAA summary.
We invite you to join us for the Classroom session or the Dive.
This is a monumental step towards protecting Florida’s Reefs and Lifestyle.
Ocean Rehab can also provide underwater video of the reef survey for your story if you like.
