Review for Reef Environmental Education Foundation, Inc., Key Largo, FL, USA
I am a marine scientist, diver, and member of Reef. I love that reef has volunteer divers that (of their own accord) have become experts at reef creature identification and that Reef.org provides tests of their knowledge. This allows me to use that data and be confident in its quality. So far I have published 2 papers that have used Reef.org data as a major part of the paper. I am also a Reef.org diver and as a diver it always gives me a good reason to get in the water and get in a fish count and a dive. Finally I have found that as divers begin counting and IDing fish and inverts in their dives they become more and more aware of the diversity of the ocean and the health of the ocean. They invariably become ocean stewards and ocean health advocates.
