         Conserving South Florida's Marine Life for our Future Generations

End of the year Dive Trash Cleanup December 18, 2016 @10:30 a.m. 

@ Phil Foster Park, aka Blue Herron Bridge, weather permitting. If you would like to join our efforts to clean up the trash arrive early as parking can be tough at high tide. We will be set up at the

west end of the park under the bridge.

We will provide the mesh trash bags,

snacks and refreshments.

If you have an underwater camera or

video recorder we would love you to

document our clean up dive.

What We Do...


Reef Protection & Aquarium Sanctuary is a Florida Nonprofit 501(c)(3) Organization aiming to conserve our marine life by educating and informing the public of the dangers caused by dumping invasive and non-indigenous marine species into our waterways from their aquariums. We also kill or capture all lionfish we encounter while diving & snorkeling. Removing the

invasive and damaging Lionfish protects our fragile and threatened ecosystem. 






Unwanted, Aggressive or Overgrown Fish?


Reef Protection & Aquarium Sanctuary is now accepting fish, sharks, eels, rays and Lionfish. Dumping fish from your aquarium into the ocean is not only illegal, it is destructive to our ecosystem. 


*We do not sell any donated fish or supplies.


Call for a FREE pick up of your unwanted fish, aquarium or slightly used snorkeling and scuba equipment.

Help us protect our sacred marine life and ocean.
