Become a REEF CHECK Surveyor

Sign up to participate in important coral reef research – June 27, 2009

Have you ever wanted to make a difference? Did you know that everyday divers CAN participate in important underwater reef research. Together with Reef Check, Pro Dive International is presenting a day-long opportunity for divers to become Reef Check surveyors. 

The Coral Reef Management Program (CRMP) is a coral reef monitoring and management system that focuses on establishing Marine Protected Areas to conserve coral reefs while encouraging sustainable use of surrounding reefs by local residents.

* Educate the public and governments about the value of coral reefs and rocky reef ecosystems and the crisis facing them.

* Create a global network of volunteer teams, trained and led by scientists, that regularly monitor and report on reef health using a standard method.

* Facilitate collaborative use of reef health information by community groups, governments, universities and businesses to design and implement ecologically sound and economically sustainable solutions.

* Stimulate local action to protect remaining pristine reefs and rehabilitate damaged reefs worldwide especially through the creation of Marine Protected Areas.
