Attention: Southeast Florida reef lovers, snorkelers, and SCUBA divers- The Florida Coral Reefs need your help!
This Summer, you can help fight the rise of coral bleaching and disease along Southeast Florida’s coasts with comprehensive BLEACHWATCH TRAINING and reporting tools to expertly assist the State of Florida’s www.SEAFAN.net monitoring system in tracking the various signs of coral bleaching & disease, and their locations.

The 2018 Summer BleachWatch Training starts the evening of June 11 in Palm Beach County at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, with additional evening introductory BleachWatch classes in Broward (June 20 & 27) and Miami-Dade (July 12).
