2018 USX Scuba Expedition
For USX’s very first underwater expedition, we are working with Reef Check Foundation to train veteran citizen scientists in a globally standardized scientific protocol, and have them conduct transect-based survey dives to assist in establishing and monitoring the health of coral reefs off the Atlantic coast of Florida. The data is analyzed and used locally by marine park managers, nationally by fisheries and environment managers, and internationally by organizations including United Nations agencies to help better track and care for coral reefs worldwide.
Expedition Dates: 18 October - 22 October 2018
The application deadline for this expedition is October 5th. Military active duty and veterans who are SCUBA certified with a recognized agency can apply here: bit.ly/2NWzKaX
