This is a wonderful organization. They are great with kids. Everyone there is super nice and very helpful and informative.
This organization has a lot of heart and it is very refreshing. We think they have some great goals and we look forward to watching them grow to achieve them.
We found this organization at the pumpkin festival. They were very informative and care about what they are doing.
I love Reef Medics! I helped out with a beach clean up. They are moving in the right direction by educating the youth on sustaining reefs and cleaning the coastline. I also love the fact that they are giving away scuba certifications to kids.
Thanks to many supporters, Reef Medics is now accepting applications for some great scholarships and in kind benefits. This year there are 3 open water dive certification scholarships and 3 mask, snorkel & fin kits available to kids ages 12-21. The application is available at http://www.reefmedics.org/scholarship.htm
Picked up tons of trash in a short stretch of beach. Thank you to all who volunteered. Please be aware of the footprint you leave. Say no to plastic straws!
What an amazing group! They are well educated, compassionate, and innovative. They are everything a non-profit should be and both Kerri and Wes Carter are inspiring people!
This charity is one which honestly serves its cause to save our reefs with integrity and heart. It is run by an extraordinary group of people who are dedicated to preserving our reefs and taking on the challenge of tackling the lion fish problem.
They are doing fantastic things! Preserving the reefs is crucial to the eco system! Keep up the good work!
Fishing is a passion of mine. When I moved to Florida, I became familiar with a growing problem attributable to a fish called LION-FISH. This fish is a native of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. How did this fish show up on this side of the world? The most logical rationale is that Home Aquarian owners dumped this very colorful fish into the ocean. In their native environment the LION-FISH have their predators keeping the eco-system in balance.. Obviously the Home Aquarian owners didn't have the predators, as a result the LION-FISH's natural drive of destroying plants, reefs and food supply was not inhibited. This means even sharks will face extinction because their food source will also be destroyed. Over time a "New World" Dead Sea will become the end result. I found much material explaining the destructive power of the LION-FISH, but very little about how to destroy them in order to protect our waters. When searching for answers how to combat this destructive fish, I found "reefmedics", a foundation which is the first one, at least to my knowledge, aggressively addressing this very serious problem from a broad perspective. I was so impressed with their approach and dedication to overcome and conquer their established goal and objective to destroy the LION-FISH through a number of modes. I became a donor for such a valiant effort. I strongly encourage you to Google "reefmedics.org" to read their website and specifically "PROJECT LION-FISH."
They offer great programs for kids through their scholarship program. Keepings kids interested in our oceans and reefs are so important to us all.
This is a great organization supporting a under promoted cause. Lionfish are causing damage in so many ways that affect so many of us. They are doing a great job of education.
When you are passionate about something, that passion drives you. The founders of Reef Medics are determined to make an impact on our environment, and restore the natural balance of our oceans. Everyone can join them in their efforts. It only takes the smallest interest in seeing Florida's resources preserved.
Reef Medics is well on its way to becoming an effective way to raise awareness of the lionfish invasion through public participation.
Cooperation and communication among local, state, federal, and international partners is crucial for proper management of lionfish and other widespread invasive species.
I think this organization is built from the heart. They really care about what they are doing and are determined to make a difference.
