Review for Reef Ball Foundation Inc, Athens, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This wonderful organization sent their Chairman to our Venice Girl Scout leader's meeting, he gave a presentation and helped educate many of our leaders about reef restoration and get them motivated to bring the message back to their girl scout troops. One of the troops, troop 198, worked directly with Todd Barber and his organization and chose to make this project their Bronze Award. Mr. Barber took the girls to Mote Aquarium, explained the entire Reef restoration process (including tons of science, like the importance of the PH levels of the Reef Balls, what fish are best served by each type, etc.) while the entire troop took notes. He also arranged for the troop to tour the factory. The girls paid for part of the Reef Ball with money they made from selling cookies (Reef Ball arranged for them to purchase it at cost!) Mr. Barber and his organization also helped the girls get the permits to launch their reef ball and helped arrange for a boat!! The girls were so excited and really learned so very much! They earned the Bronze Award and were able to present their project at the Young Women of Distinction Ceremony.
