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 remove lionfish we encounter while diving. Removing the invasive and
destructive Lionfish protects our fragile and threatened ecosystem.
The end of the year Dive Trash Clean up December 18, 2016
at Phil Foster Park was a success! we pulled out 35 pounds of trash
and 3 small Lionfish. If you would like to join our future efforts to
clean up the trash in our waterways please sign up and volunteer.
