How is 4Ocean Working With the CRF?

4Ocean has partnered with the Coral Restoration Foundation for the month of March.

We wanted to do more than just donate, our team wanted to get hands on and really help to make a difference.

Check out how we helped with taking care of the corals in the coral nursery, and how we helped to outplant corals onto coral reefs.

Great teaming! Where I really want to be is Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean where I grew up, but here in Detroit I am able to at least join river clean-ups. On our street some of us are shoveling gruesome stuff going toward the storm drain right here and digging swales, neighbor by neighbor
to reroute the water back into the earth and reduce junk that is aimed structurally into the drain, river, Lake and on down to you. It’s something, I hope, struggling to build awareness and simple actions in the community.
I love your group and website. One day I might get to you after all.
In solidarity,

You have raised my awareness of the need for ocean clean-up and protection of the reefs. I bow down to you for stepping up to do this work. I will do my part from inland and promise to do my part when near the sea. Thank you!!!!!!

Love the work you are doing. Volunteering is an interesting proposition to consider on a trip to the keys.

When we were younger, we dove off Key Largo in the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. I was amazed and sad because we always came up with pockets full of trash.
A few times on cruise ships, we saw first hand of cargo vessel’s dumping several trash bags overboard. I think cruise ships stopped this practice long ago, but i don’t know for sure.
We dove in Bimini once. The marina was littered with beer bottles. We asked the waiter about it, he laughed and through our empties in the bay.

Algal blooms are natural events that, for the most part, actually benefit ocean life.

But there are many different kinds of algae...and not all of them are beneficial. Discover what 4ocean is doing to address the harmful algal blooms affecting both of Florida's coasts.

How One Current Changed a Scuba Diver’s Life Forever

by 4Ocean Team October 04, 2018

As we got closer to the ocean floor, we began to approach a reef; this reef was nothing short of epic. The colours were bright and everything appeared to be healthy with marine life flourishing... that was until the current changed. Within seconds, this heaving reef became surrounded with plastic and rubbish.
