ReefCI

ReefCI's picture

Our mission statement is to conserve the marine environment, to support local communities, give our guests a unique experience whilst obtaining resources to operate.

ReefCI do not like to call our guests ‘volunteers’!!! We recognize that without  our guests we cannot sustain what we do. When you come on a trip with ReefCI you will be well looked after. We operate throughout the year; therefore we are continually collecting data. So, as our guest you can choose how much you want to do.

Everyone contributes, just by paying for a ReefCI trip you are helping! Some people come to learn to dive, some people want to relax and put something back into the environment and others want to do as much conservation work as possible! The choice is yours depending upon your diving experience and the length of your ReefCI trip. Everyone leaves with a healthy knowledge of the marine environment, a better knowledge of species and as better divers!

Our planet is 70% ocean. Coral reefs make up only 0.2% of those oceans, however they are home to 25% of all marine fish! Compared to land, it is very difficult to collect data from the ocean! You need special skill sets and equipment and you may have to travel 1000’s of miles to get from one eco system to the next! This is why the scientific community recognizes the need to work with non-scientists in order to help collect important data.

[reefci-volunteering-02] ReefCI are working with The Department of Fisheries and NGO’s (non government organisations) in Belize. It is important to ReefCI that we work with local entities in order to ensure the research we collect benefits the host country. ReefCI also send data to various international scientific entities.
