Do you plant trees in our watersheds? Discourage stepping on corals and fish feeding? Participate in coral reef monitoring or report coral bleaching? Consider fish size for sustainable fishing? Use reusable shopping bags? These activities along with many others show your commitment to conserve Guam’s natural environment, from ridge at the top of the watershed to the coral reefs in our receiving waters. We want to celebrate YOU! Let’s get together for some fun to share the big and small ways our community has contributed to the conservation of our coral reefs.
We’re kicking off Guam’s Year of the Reef with a celebration! The Guam Community Coral Reef Monitoring Program invites all of you to our 2nd Reef Exploration, Experiences, & Fun (R.E.E.F.)
