Reef Relief Photo Monitoring Survey Online Archive

Welcome to the Reef Relief archive of images. Most of these images were taken by Reef Relief Founder Craig Quirolo as part of the Reef Relief Coral Photo Monitoring Survey that began in 1992 and ended in 2005 at Key West-area reefs. Those images are organized by reef location under the main heading Key West Coral Reefs. There are also other categories containing images of special topics of coral reef health and images taken at several Caribbean coral reefs as part of past Reef Relief programs to support local grassroots coral reef protection at these other locations.

Considering that corals are rapidly disappearing worldwide, it is imperative that we reduce our use of fossil fuels as well as fertilizers and pesticides. This is not a drill, our planet is sick and dying and the coral reefs are the canary in the coal mine.
