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.
