FAMOUS FOX: FISH SURVEYS AND HEAD TREASURE HUNT THIS WEEKEND

0
Through the Volunteer Fish Survey project, REEF educates recreational divers on how to properly survey fish on each of their dives.

Hi friends! Reef the fox here with your weekly “reef report”.

I’ve been a very busy fox over the past week. I had an interview with a company called GeoBeats about my amazing ability. Mum had her own interview with ‘The Independent’ which is a UK-based online media company.

I taught Kai the fox how to scream early in the morning. I have a lot to do, as you can see. Mom has been working a lot the past two weeks, which means she left the charge to me, or so I guess. So, I coordinated nap time with the foxes. Everyone has their own assigned spot, but I can choose my favorite spot, of course. Believe it or not, Kai and I are sleeping peacefully under the bed and things are working really well here.

There are a host of upcoming events. On Friday, September 16, join Rainbow Reef for a fish survey trip. Scientists, researchers and conservation organizations rely on data showing where different species of fish thrive and where invasive species have a negative impact. This allows them to study different species of fish and offer advice on where humans have a major impact and what can be done about it. Unfortunately, there are far too few scientists to constantly monitor and monitor these fish. Rainbow Reef has partnered with the Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF), which has generated one of the largest databases of marine life in the world. Through the Volunteer Fish Survey project, REEF educates recreational divers on how to properly survey fish on each of their dives. They can then add this information about the number and species of fish to the database used by scientists and researchers around the world. Call to reserve your spot at 305-451-7171.

A scavenger hunt is taking place on Saturday, September 17 in Islamorada at the Florida Keys Brewing Company (FKBC). The cost is $10 per person with all proceeds going to the Good Health Clinic and the Keys History & Discovery Center. Teams of up to four people are allowed. There will be over 100 items to find on Upper Matecumbe. You can bike or walk and all items will be on the ocean side from Whale Harbor to Midway Cafe so there will be no need to cross US 1. Teams will start and end at FKBC at any time between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., and you can register anytime in the tasting room. Winners will be announced at 6 p.m.

Anyway, that’s all for this week. Check us out and follow our social media by visiting pawsitivebeginnings.org. Until next time, Reef, done and out!
