The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is the world’s largest, one-day volunteer effort to clean up the marine environment. Every September, volunteers from over 100 countries descend on local beaches, rivers, lakes and canals to show their commitment to cleaner waterways. The Ocean Conservancy, the world’s largest organization focusing exclusively on the health of the marine environment, has sponsored this annual event for the past 23 years.

We have also selected Sawfish Bay Park as the backup location if the Beaches are not accessible due to Oil Spill Related Damages. This is also a PBC Park.

Ocean Rehab Initiative, Inc, a 501 C-3 organization located in West Palm Beach FL is planning a Reef Check Project in the Florida Keys in conjunction with the 2010 Florida Reef Project.

 

In response to the current emergency caused by the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf which is projected to hit the Florida Straits this week and then the Keys Ocean Rehab is expecting over 500 divers and snorkelers to help document the current marine life, corals, mangroves and ocean visibility prior to the effects of oil damages.

 

The divers will meet Saturday May 8, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. at the Marine Mammal Conservancy located in Key Largo at 102200 Overseas Highway. The divers will be taking scientific readings and  video footage/photography of the coral reefs and surrounding mangrove and grassy areas.

 

The Ocean Rehab Initiative, Inc. was founded by William Djubin in 2009 who envisioned the need for baseline documentation of our fragile coastal ecosystem. Florida is the only state in the continental United States to have extensive shallow coral reef formations near its coasts. A globally respected and scientifically transferable baseline for this ecosystem’s health does not currently exist.  According to Mr. Djubin,” With the impending damages cause by this oil spill we have simply stepped up our efforts and timeline to meet the current emergency.  This just gives us more of a reason and substantiates the necessity of this project.” During the 2010 Florida Reef Project we (Ocean Rehab Initiative Inc.) will collaborate efforts with Academia, Science, and Volunteers to establish a scientific baseline for the entire SE Florida Reef tract utilizing California’s Reef Check Caribbean methodologies.
