Hi! We have 3 full time staff, and about 7 interns We are about to add another scientist to our work as well (if you wanted to send in a resume). Our facility is about 2,000 square feet separated into two main sections. We have a pacific area that is mainly used for education, and then due to biodiversity we have all of our research separated into another area. Interns photograph the current rescues, measure, due water quality, water changes, siphon, and clean rescue vats. Our marine vet cares for the corals and ensures their healthy on a daily basis. He also cares for our other fish and inverts in our facility. Today I spent 2 hours fixing what should have been a simple tank issue that wasn't simple for some reason Tonight I am being interviewed by a 5th grader wanting to know more about why our reefs are dying. We also have a full time educator and partner with a school to provide weekly education to all of the students in the school. I am the Executive Director and I get to do all of the awesome day to day stuff. We also do coral monitoring locally in the water, fish counts, and so many other things. If you are interested in finding out more you can email me at: [email protected]Hey Reef Institute, it's great to see you on Reef2Reef! Could you share some information on the day-to-day operations of your facility? How many team members make up the institute?
