OUR FLORIDA REEFS, a community planning process for southeast Florida’s coral reefs is launching! Be among the first to join the online community at: www.OurFloridaReefs.org.
You are also invited to a free, upcoming meeting in your community to kick off the OUR FLORIDA REEFS community planning process, hosted by the Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI).
OUR FLORIDA REEFS is a community planning process for southeast Florida’s coral reefs.
Hosted by the Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI), this planning process brings together the community of local residents, reef users, business owners, visitors and the broader public in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin counties to discuss the future of coral reefs in this region.
This process is designed to increase public involvement in the future management of southeast Florida’s coral reefs by seeking input from community members on the development of recommendations that can become part of a comprehensive management strategy to ensure healthy coral reefs in the future.
The planning process includes the offshore reefs in the four-county region, from north of Biscayne National Park in Miami-Dade County to the St. Lucie Inlet in Martin County.
