Message #149

1) During the Summer of 2000, Living Classrooms is offering exciting, new, advanced academic study opportunities in marine biology and coral reef ecology. Program components will include lab work, hands-on field work, and classroom instruction along with the building and deploying of Reef Balls. Learn how to enroll atycle of marine corals, invertebrates, and other tropical species.

2) The (President Jimmy) Carter Center and Alumni newsletter came out today with an interesting article about Reef Balls.

3) Don’t forget to log in TONIGHT to “join a live chat with Todd Barber, chairman of the Reef Ball Foundation, about the health of the world's coral reef systems and the threats posed by pollution and other issues. Barber's organization has worked around the world to protect and regenerate coral reefs. This chat is scheduled for today from 8 to 9 p.m. ET.”

4) The Reef Ball Foundation’s support for Earth Day includes a training session on building Reef Balls by Todd Barber during the Earth Day trip to Dominica. Participants in this trip will automatically qualify as being trained for construction of Reef Ball for a Reefs Around The World or Reefs Around The Nation Grant (see the Reef Ball Foundation’s website for grant details). If your organization has applied for a Grant or is thinking about getting one…this can be a cost effective way to get your Reef Ball construction training while enjoying a fun trip lead by Tanya Streeter (World Record Freediver).

5) There will be a meeting on February 28th at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center, 110 Shenandoah Avenue in Roanoke, Virginia regarding the creation of a statewide educational program involving the construction of Reef Balls for the state’s artificial reef program. This is only an organizational meeting and project plans have not been formed. Parties interested in attending may do so by contacting Reef Ball headquarters to reserve a space.
