Oil Spill Habitat Surveys by Ocean Rehab Initiative Inc.

For Immediate Release                             Press CONTACT:  Morna McGann

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.

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.

 
 
 

 

If you know Florida Diver’s that may be interested in this fantastic opportunity have them contact us today.

 

Recently I was privileged to showcase the EarthRehab campaign to South Florida viewers on NBC6.

 

 

The EarthRehab campaign was designed to create funding and awareness for Nature Research, utilizing an Iconic Green License Plate.

EarthRehab adopts Coral Cove Park, Jupiter Island Florida

Coral Cove and EarthRehab

Coral Cove and EarthRehab

 

EarthRehab is the recycled Green License Plate campaign that raises funds and awareness for Nature Research. EarthRehab is a conservation and preservation activist campaign. We’ve got a lot of work to do, and we need your help.

 

EarthRehab’s adoption is in conjunction with the Adopt a Park program in Florida.

If an organization or team of residents can commit to 4 Beach/Park cleanups a year, they can adopt a park in Florida.

 

I could not think of a better venue to adopt than Coral Cove Park, Jupiter Island.

 

Coral Cove Park is critical habitat to threatened and protected land and ocean species including beach mice, red wolves, manatees, sea turtles, and snook.

Coral Cove Park has a live Coral Reef Tract that extends from the Jupiter Inlet north to Blowing Rocks Preserve managed by Nature Conservancy.

-a side note and bonus-

Forbes noted Jupiter Island as the most expensive Zip Code in America, so

“Hey Tiger Woods, Celine Dion, Doubledays, Johnsons, Fords, Du Ponts and Nature Conservancy… were neighbors for the next 2 years.”

 

EarthRehab will not only host 8 beach cleanups, but will also host several snorkel and diving excursions on this world famous reef.

EarthRehab would like to map and monitor this Coral Reef Tract and then make a strong argument for a Marine Managed Area or Marine Protected Area in the very near future.

Contact William at EarthRehab for information and events planning.
