Citizen Science for the Submerged (aka: We’ll Make a Fish Geek Out of You Yet!)

Presentation Abstract

Want to give more purpose and fun to your diving? Janna Nichols (REEF’s Citizen Science Project Manager) will show you how to monitor marine life and submit your data to the largest online marine life sightings database in the world, used by scientists, researchers, students, policy-makers, etc. Participating in REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project is easy, fun, and can be done anytime, anywhere, year-round.

Many divers are looking for a purpose to their diving after the “Oh wow” factor wears off.  Contributing your observations of marine life to the REEF database will increase your knowledge of what you’re seeing as well as giving you the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference in the health of our oceans, locally and elsewhere.

Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) is an international marine conservation organization that implements hands-on programs to involve local communities in conservation-focused activities. REEF was founded in 1990 and is based in Key Largo, Florida, with remote staff in Illinois, California, and Washington. Its mission is to protect biodiversity and ocean life by actively engaging and inspiring the public through citizen science, education, and partnerships with the scientific community.
