The Reef Check Fondation:
Dedicated to global coral reef education monitoring and management

Reef Check was founded in 1997 as a grass-roots, volunteer initiative to help local communities learn how to monitor the health of their coral reefs using a standard, scientifically rigorous method. Since then, Reef Check has expanded to include teams of voluteer scuba divers and snorkelers who are using Reef Ckeck methods to monitor reefs in over 50 countries. In addition to providing crucial data to scientists and resource managers, Reef Check’s global teams educate the public about the value of coral reefs, threats to coral health, and solutions to these problems. Most importantly, Reef Check provides the tools and training for local communities to manage and protect their coral reefs.
