Message #100

1) New pages have been posted about the Turks and Caicos project, see
Newmont in Indonesia have purchased a Bay and Pallet Ball mold. They have contracted Green Marine through Sinclair Knight Merz to go over 20 July and do a site assessment, construction/deployment training, and make sure they are maximising the benefits for all involved. Will be onsite for 12 days in Manado. They plan to continually make modules and deploy them, but once I'm there I will be able to report on the details.

Underwater World in Mooloolaba successful deployed two BBs to help towards completion of the Southern Cross Trail, sponsored by the Body Shop, Underwater World and GMI. The trail is principally for divers and in the formation of the Southern Cross constellation and now has 3 BBs on it. The two BBs took four attempts due to weather but three TV crews were there including Body Shop reps and they absolutely loved the BBs. Underwater World is now in the process of getting permits for a snorkelling reef which we aim to construct for the Olympics. Underwater World would like to order 30 more Bay Balls.

3) Reef Balls will be deployed by 4-H on July 30th at the 10th Street Ramp in Sarasota Flordia (10:00 am). An article/Pictorial about the project is in this week's Pelican Press.

4) Presentation to Dive Club on Thursday night at Orlando Reef Divers, 4th Fighter Group, East Colonial Drive, Orlando, Florida at 6:30 P.M. Subject: Reef Ball Foundation and activities.

5) A Marine Biologogy intern, Tara Jerussi from the University of Rhode Island has started work with the Reef Ball Foundation and Reef Innovations. She will be working in many aspects of Reef Ball programs this summer.

6) Reef Ball Coaltion is setting up another project in St.Lucia this week and will build and deploy 10 Reef Balls to kick off the project.
