Pride Bite: NSU’s Oceanographic Center Researchers help conduct Survey to Help Provide Better Stewardship for our Coral Reefs

OurFloridaReefs LogoNSU’s Oceanographic Center has teamed up with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI) to launch the Our Florida Reefs Coastal and Ocean Use survey. This survey is being conducted as part of a local initiative for our area, known as Our Florida Reefs. The survey is intended for anyone – local, state, national or international – who has enjoyed the coral reefs in Southeast Florida to provide information on their experiences. You can find the survey by visiting Our Florida Reefs Webpage at www.ourfloridareefs.org and clicking on the MAPPING tab.

By providing information on where they fish, dive, boat, surf, etc. local residents, reef users, business owners, visitors and the broader public in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Martin counties will be part of the data used by the Our Florida Reefs Community Working Groups. The information will be used to enhance recommendations on managing our reefs to better balance resource use and protection while ensuring healthy coral reefs for future generations.
