Palm Beach County Reef Rescue, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Fish Wildlife Conservation Commission are working together to establish a marine debris reporting and removal program for southeast Florida coral reefs. The program encourages local divers and dive shops to report marine debris, followed by reef cleanup events to remove the debris.
This July, four reef cleanup events are scheduled
