ReefCI’s New and Improved Marine Conservation Program
October 15, 2020
During our COVID-19 shutdown, we have been hard at work updating and improving our marine conservation program. Reef Conservation International is marine conservation in the real world and we need your help! Our new and updated marine conservation efforts focus on the following:
Eradicating invasive species from coral reefs: Invasive Lionfish population control and monitoring (spearing and dissecting lionfish)
Marine conservation education: Learning about coral reefs and marine animals and discover how we can protect our reefs from a warming planet
Biodiversity (fish, invertebrates, and coral) identification dives to increase one’s knowledge and understanding of reef ecosystems
Weekly beach and island trash/plastic removal on islands of the Belize Barrier Reef
Below is our new 4 week marine conservation education schedule. We are very excited to share with all of our volunteers this new program upon our reopening November 1st, 2020!
Reef Conservation International’s mission is to protect our oceans through hands-on conservation action and marine environmental education and awareness. We empower everyday global citizens to take an active role in directly protecting and conserving the Belize Barrier Reef and our oceans that we love via our marine conservation projects and environmental education and awareness.
