What is presumed is 75+% of the SE Florida Reef tract is stressed/impaired(dying) or showing hypoxic symptoms already. Now, this fragile eco-system may get affected by the Louisiana Gulf Oil (BP) explosion and collapsed leaking oil platform and drill.
-let’s all pray that doesn’t come to fruition.
Reef Rescue reports

“A blazing oil rig that was shaken by an explosion earlier this week sank in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday. The blast caused an initial spill and officials said there appeared to be no further leaks. However, on Saturday a Coast Guard commander said up to 1,000 barrels of oil a day were leaking at the site.

Rear Adm. Mary Landry said at a news conference “the leak was discovered Saturday; this is a very serious spill.” It was unclear how the leak in the well would be plugged; she said the well is leaking from the seabed, 5,000 feet below the gulf’s surface.

”Everything that goes into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and comes out will pass through the Florida Keys, and that’s a fact,” said Paul Johnson, a Reef Relief policy advisor who has studied Gulf oil spills.

Should the oil become entrained in the Florida Loop Current it could be transported along the Florida Reef Tract, through the Keys and to Florida’s east coast.

“Thousands of Floridians from all walks of life will gather on beaches from Pensacola to Key West and Miami to Jacksonville Feb. 13, 2010, in a statewide coastal protest against legislative proposals to open Florida’s waters to offshore oil drilling.”

Each county on this Florida map will have 20 survey sites indicated by RED dots (GPS); the RED dots will turn GREEN as the site survey is complete and Health information is available. You will be able to hover over the GREEN dots and retrieve information and current status about the site.
 
We are currently awaiting the determination letter and approval from the IRS to accept donations for the project.

(So please be patient.)
This project is on schedule
and will launch January 2010 with diver training to start as soon as February, surveys to begin March thru June.
