THE STORY:

Doing your part to help protect Bermuda’s coral reefs has never been easier, and on Saturday, Sept 24 & Sunday Sept 25 , the Bermuda Zoological Society, with the support of lead sponsor Hiscox, will host the 4th Annual Reef Watch Event, a community environmental monitoring project that examines the health of Bermuda’s coral reef systems. Each participant is provided with the necessary training to learn how to survey reefs, taking into account fish stocks and coral coverage. The data they collect on the day will then be collated and used in the ongoing assessment of the state of Bermuda’s reef system. Participants are expected to work together in teams of four during the event. So grab family, friends and work colleagues for a great day out on the water! In addition to the data collected, participants have the opportunity to help raise funds for the ongoing protection and conservation of Bermuda’s coral reefs. Last year, those who participated raised more than $26,000. Each team is encouraged to raise at least $500 in pledges from family and friends, and through corporate matching. The team that raises the most for the day is rewarded with prizes, so there is fierce competition to go above and beyond. Bermuda would not exist without coral reefs, they are vital to our economy and well-being, they protect us from storms, they provide recreation and food. One of the few healthy coral reef systems remaining worldwide, Bermuda’s reefs are fragile and need our help. REEF Watch provides snorkelers with the necessary skills to gather valuable information, which contributes to a growing body of information being used to better manage our coral reefs. Its super easy to get involved in the groundbreaking community event. Follow the steps below and checkout this video REEF Watch- Become a Citizen Scientist.
