International Year of the Reef - Reef Check

All of you may or may not know that 2008 is designated as International Year of the Reef by the scientific community. The executive director at a local environmental charity called Reef Check here in Southern California, is the catalyst behind that designation. Dr. Gregor Hodgson, the executive director, is a visionary and leader in coral reef research and data collection world wide.

Reef Check has released an important survey that can be found at http://surveys.edgeresearch.com/eight/rcoflogn.htm

Our industry largely focuses around and impacts tropical areas of the world. The survey at that link is designed to extract useful information about your knowledge and opinions on various issues surrounding coral reef systems.

I highly encourage our industry to take the 10-15 minutes necessary to complete the survey. Do something for science from the comfort of your computer.
