BioBlitz

A BioBlitz is an intense period of biological surveying to record all living species in a designated area. For this particular BioBlitz event, volunteer citizen science divers will conduct surveys to establish baseline conditions of rare and protected species near the Port Everglades reef before the dredging project. Citizen science divers will attend a training the night before (September 7, 2018), consisting of correct coral species identification techniques as well as coral survey techniques that will be used for the dives. Once completed, volunteer divers will participate in one dive day (four dives) to help collect data which will be used to evaluate dredging impacts on the nearby coral reef!

Can't make the diving portion? A celebration afterwards is open to all who attend the event, and any members of the public who want to support the cause!

Note: You must be have an Advanced Diving Certification to Participate!

Cancellations must be 48 hours before the event in order to receive a full refund

International Coastal Cleanup Day 2018

 

Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds of plastic enter our ocean every year threatening marine life from corals polyps to sharks, the health of people, and local economies. 

Join the world’s largest one-day volunteer effort for our oceans by participating in Ocean Conservancy’s 33rd annual International Coastal Cleanup, on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 and show your commitment to reducing marine debris, along with volunteers from around the globe!

VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami-Dade’s local participation in this global event with 45+ simultaneous shoreline cleanups around the county and is made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsor, Covanta, with additional support from the City of Miami Beach - MB Rising Above, Capital One, Revolution 93.5 FM, and Miami Beach Suncare.

Miami Waterkeeper will be the captains of the Miami Marine Stadium/MAST Academy Trail on Virginia Key, so come out and join us to clean-up our beautiful waterways!
