Reef Relief is a nonprofit membership organization based in the Florida Keys that is dedicated to improving and protecting our coral reef ecosystem through education and outreach. Their goal is to focus on rigorous science to educate the public and advocacy toward policy-makers to achieve conservation, protection and restoration of coral reefs. Increase public awareness of the importance and value of living coral reef ecosystems and scientific understanding and knowledge of living coral reef ecosystems.
They also aim to strengthen grassroots community-based efforts to protect coral reef ecosystems through many volunteer programs. Reef Relief helps design, develop, support and implement strategies for marine protected areas associated with coral reef ecosystems. We encourage and support eco-tourism as part of sustainable community development that protects and preserves coral reef ecosystems.
