Janna Nichols - REEF: Make Your Dives Count for Something!
Click to show meeting description

Janna Nichols (REEF Citizen Science Project Manager) will show you how to monitor marine life and submit your data to the largest online marine life sightings database in the world, used by scientists, researchers, students, policy-makers, etc. Participating in REEF's Volunteer Fish Survey Project is easy, fun, and can be done anytime, anywhere, year-round. She will also tell about REEF’s other programs.

Janna has been actively involved in the diving community since 2000, primarily in the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest, where she lives. She has been a PADI scuba instructor, an AAUS scientific diver and a Dive Safety Officer. Many of her underwater photos of marine life have been published in guidebooks, textbooks, online resources, newspapers and scientific publications. In 2003, she received REEF's Volunteer of the Year award, in 2013 she received Dive News Network's Diver of the Year Award, and in 2015 she received the Golden Hamlet award (1000 surveys) from REEF. She has done a few dives by shore and boat in the Northeast. (Cunner!)

2022 Great Annual Fish Count


REEF

Join us for the 19th year hosting the event! You can help count fish and win prizes! This year, we are proud to be a REEF Conservation Partner

Each year divers help researchers by surveying fish populations. This is done by identifying what fish you see on a dive. After the dive, we gather at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, for raffle prizes and a BBQ! All Dives in July count toward the GAFC raffle.

This data helps researchers and policy-makers so remember to count fish on every dive!

You must register for the event AND submit a survey in order to be eligible for the raffle prizes. Only one raffle entry per diver (so multiple dives don't give multiple raffle entries).

For more info visit http://www.neadc.org/gafc/
