Reef Check is a non-profit organization, with a primary mission to promote conservation of tropical coral reefs and California rocky reefs.

According to its website, Reef Check’s goals are to: educate the public about the value of reef ecosystems and the current crisis affecting marine life; to create a global network of volunteer teams trained in Reef Check’s scientific methods who regularly monitor and report on reef health; to facilitate collaboration that produces ecologically sound and economically sustainable solutions; and to stimulate local community action to protect remaining pristine reefs and rehabilitate damaged reefs worldwide.

Their International Declaration of Reef Rights (see below) is a great reminder for all of us.  You can sign this declaration on Reef Check’s website to show your support for coral reef preservation and conservation.
