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

Rating: 5 stars  

Reefball Foundation is one of the most effective and benevolent nonprofit environment rejuvenation organizations I have ever encountered. Their tireless efforts worldwide have only been possible through the goodwill necessary to attract volunteer personnel and resources, and the environmental return has been much more effective and efficient than in most nonprofits we see. Their ultimate overriding and omnipresent goal of “putting balls in the water” translates to rejuvenation of coral reefs necessary to rebuild the critical economic base of coastal communities. From rejuvenating the Tsunami-torn areas to re-attract environmental tourism (such as SCUBA diving) to generating fish production in fresh water venues, to countering the ill effects of pollution, global warming, beach loss, and other hazards, Reefball has been a leader in mitigating environmental damage while taking into account the intricate biology, physics, logistical, and economic considerations of performing such projects in an effective way. I fully support this project in its endeavors.
