BENEFITING: ATLANTIC CONSERVATION PARTNERSHIP LTD
REEF WATCH will train you to recognize key fish and corals essential for reef health. Each vessel contributes a fee to coral reef research. The funds will support data collection and analysis.
REEF WATCH has been developed to be an annual community environmental monitoring fundraising project run by Bermuda Zoological Society (BZS). It supports on-going management of the Bermuda Reef Platform by mobilizing and training volunteers, BZS members, students, interested naturalists, recreational fishermen, lobster divers, boaters, etc., on a one day event to identify and record key reef species.
Bermuda supports the northern-most coral reef system in the world and it is the aim of BZS to increase awareness by monitoring the health and abundance of critical species of fishes and corals within our coral reef system. This annual event will help us understand, protect and manage our reef environment.
