You can make a difference. The Reef Institute is a 501(c)3 that is made up of dedicated staff, interns, and volunteers who are committed to the improvement of our Florida Reef Tract.  


Your donation allows us to continue our research, offer marine biology education, and restore our Florida Reef Tract. We have unfunded research projects where your donation will make a difference!
