As Reef Environmental Education Foundations Conservation Partner, we provide Marine identification training and certification for all levels. Once you achieve level 4 expertise you have graduated to the Advance Assessment Team for more dive opportunities. Your REEF survey of Saltwater State Park throughout the year is valuable long term data. Saltwater marine park has 4 different REEF codes you can use depending on where you are surveying. (see REEF map).
We have compiled reports from our Marine Life Surveys, and they are available to the public below for you to see how the marine life has done here over the years.
Our volunteer divers are hard at work maintaining and growing the marine ecosystem.
In the video below we are installing strings seeded with bull kelp to help restore the kelp forest.
Buoy Monitoring and Maintenance
In the marine park there are 4 marker canister buoys that help boaters recognize where the Marine Preserve Area is located. Inside the MPA there are two mooring buoys for dive boats and there are two buoys for divers to descend on the reefs. Volunteer support is need in many marine oriented activities including photography, data analysis and buoy maintenance, both diver and non diver volunteers are welcome.
