Reef Check California April 2008 Update

By Reef Check California Director of Science Cyndi Dawson
Spring has sprung and March has been a busy month! The Reef Check California Program has been braving chilly upwelled waters to complete three new RCCA diver trainings and has recertified over 60 divers from the previous year. There are now over 200 divers trained in Reef Check California survey methods. This year, these divers will help complete surveys at over 50 sites ranging from Crescent City to San Diego. The growth of the program has been phenomenal due to the dedication and commitment of volunteers and supporters. RCCA needs your continued support to further improve marine resource management in California. So please take action… become a member of Reef Check or get trained and do some surveys!!!
