10/25 Project Funded: Marine Survey

FullSizeRenderWe are very excited to announce our partnership with the Costal Zone Management (CZM) division of the Department of Planning & Natural Resources (DPNR) to conduct thorough surveys of “high priority” bays and reefs around St. Thomas & St. John to take stock of how they were impacted by the hurricanes and their readiness to welcome tourists back for the 2018 season.

We’ve divided each island into four quadrants and contracted with a local charter captain to shuttle CZM and MRF representatives around to collect images and baseline data.  Weather dependent, the plan is to spend one day in each quadrant so we are looking at an eight day mission.

Budget for the entire project (including write up) is $3k.
