The Board of Directors of Reef Check Foundation is excited to welcome Dr. Jan Freiwald as its new Executive Director. Jan has led Reef Check's California (RCCA) program for the past eight years, growing it into a vibrant, state-wide marine protected area (MPA) monitoring network at over a hundred sites with hundreds of volunteer citizen scientists. He has expanded Reef Check's work by implementing a climate change research project and will be applying his experience growing the RCCA program to continue growing the Reef Check Foundation globally. In Jan's words, "I am excited about taking on the leadership of the Reef Check Foundation and I am looking forward to working with the Reef Check teams worldwide."
