A successful launch event for Reef Check Dominican Republic was held at Marina Casa De Campo, La Romana on Saturday June 17.  The lovely Kelly Hu was the featured Reef Check spokesperson. The participants were touched to hear from someone who also grew up on an island, and who could understand the value of coral reefs. Kelly also snorkled on the beautiful reefs of Catalina Island, a marine protected area with healthy coral reefs.  The event also featured presentations by Elena Brineman, Director, USAID Dominican Republic, and RC Dominican Republic Director Dr. Ruben Torres.  Reef Check thanks everyone who joined for Reef Rescue DR including the wonderful people, businesses, and organizations who helped sponsor the event and who donated time and items for the fundraiser.
