Thank you for your support

Thank you to the Parrotheads for the Palm Beaches for their generous donation of $500.00 to Reef Rescue.

These funds will be used to help us work to keep contractors from damaging our local coral reefs during a record number of beach renourishment projects scheduled to begin in November.

Look for projects in Boca, Delray, Ocean Ridge, Palm Beach and Jupiter within the coming months. Plus there are a few planned in Broward County that have potential to damage the near-shore staghorn coral thickets.

Monitoring contractor compliance will be a full time job for us and will take many months, time and money.

If you have time to volunteer, please contact us. If you would like to make a donation, please visit our secure webpage at: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/1434187
