Negril, Jamaica Reef Mooring Buoy Project

In November of 1991, Reef Relief worked with Executive Director Katy Thacker and the Negril Coral Reef Preservation Society (NCRPS), to install 35 reef mooring buoys at the coral reefs of Negril, Jamaica. In subsequent years, Reef Relief returned to train local preservationists to patrol their reefs through creation of the Reef Ranger Program, implemented a buoy maintenance program, installed a swimmer's lane, supported the Junior Ranger school program and creation of a water quality program, and helped create the Negril Marine Park, managed by NCRPS.  Read the report .
If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering. Aldo Leopold, Round River, 1993.
