Reef Check and Palm Beach Fin Divers

Wednesday October 22, 2008 at 7pm

Loggerhead Marine Life Center, Juno Florida

 

William Djubin Founder of EarthRehab will explain the Reef Check methodologies for Coral Reef Mapping and Monitoring to the Palm Beach Fin Diver Club.

Not a member of the Palm Beach Fin Divers?

You can join at this meeting, so join us now.

Why should you care?

Mapping and monitoring of the reef eco-systems will play a primary role when addressing Marine Protected Areas and Marine Managed Ares in the near future.

Divers and ocean advocates should want to participate in this conservation effort.

 

A presentation regarding the current ‘State of our Reefs’ in Florida and a Global perspective regarding reef health will be made.

Inland water quality and understanding the challenges we face in Florida is on topic for discussion.

The federal government is now proposing to declare an extensive protected area for the two species from the coasts of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties through the Florida Keys to the U.S. islands of the Caribbean.

Designation of the 4,931-square-mile area could affect plans for beach-widening, port expansions, sewage discharges, ship anchoring and other coastal activities. Although it is unlikely to halt them, it would add a layer of scrutiny that could force changes or relocations to avoid harming the corals, said Sarah Heberling, natural resource specialist for the National Marine Fisheries Service

Critical Habitat designation Proposed to protect threatened Florida Corals
Under the Endangered Species Act the federal government has proposed designating almost 5,000 square miles of reef area off the coasts of Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as critical habitat for the protection of threatened Staghorn and Elkhorn corals. The area includes all coastal waters in Palm Beach County from the beach out to 90 feet deep.
Critical habitat is one of the most important safety nets for wildlife listed under the Endangered Species Act, said Miyoko Sakashita, attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity.

A public hearing will be held on the proposal Tuesday, March 4, 7-9 p.m. at the International Game Fish Association, 300 Gulf Stream Way, Dania Beach.

EarthRehab’s William will attend “said” meeting and keep this thread posted of the outfalls.
