Join Pura Vida Divers on Sunday, March 14th & 15th for a two tank REEF Fish Counts trip aboard Sirena. We will be conducting Citizen Scientists for REEF Dives on the AM and PM trips!
As divers, we get to observe marine creatures in their natural environment and with frequent and regular sightings, we often become familiar with local trends. But did you know that our observations can be used to help protect our marine environment?
The REEF Fish Count Program allows volunteer scuba divers to collect and report information on marine fish populations as well as selected invertebrate and algae species. The data collected is used by marine ecologists from NOAA, the State of Florida, Caribbean and Bahamas government environmental protection offices, marine park management, and conservation groups to make and change current environmental regulations.
On March 14th & 15th, our goal is to conduct REEF Fish Count Dives for Palm Beach!
These two tank trips aboard Sirena will include the boat pass and a Pura Vida “Fish Counts” t-shirt.
Andrea Whitaker, REEF Fish Surveyor and Pura Vida staff member, will be on board Sunday, March 15th to help identify and count the species of fish and invertebrates seen. Be sure to reserve your space early, as these trips is sure to fill quickly.
