Florida Tar Balls found in Vero; pre-oil surveys

Tar Balls found in Vero, Florida
2010 Tar Balls found in Vero, Florida

This is exactly what we were told to do with the information:

Call FDEP @ 1800-320-0519.
Then send the photo of the possible Horizon and Gulf Oil Spill related Tar Ball to : swp@em.myflorida.com
We were told that several Tar Balls were reported from Vero, none of which have been related to the Horizon and Gulf Oil Spill.
Fortunately we had GPS on-site for the Pre-oil Surveys.

Volunteers are needed to Inventory Critical Habitat before Oil saturates your Coastline.

Our Simple methodology with 4 volunteers and a few “easy to access items” is all you need to protect Fragile Eco-systems.  What will you need?

 1. A 100meter Transect/ measuring tape

2. A GPS Navigator app on your Phone and

3. A Camera and paper to record your Locations on.

Our survey system for recording Critical Habitat including Coral Reefs, Mangroves, Sea Grasses, Sea Oats, and Beaches has been proven successful for Scientific purposes and easy to understand and implement by our Volunteers.
