Reef Relief Environmental Center

Reef Relief Visitor Center

 

Reef Relief’s environmental education and advocacy programs are essential for growing awareness that leads to the active support of citizens for coastal resource protection in the Florida Keys and throughout the world. As part of this effort, our Environmental Center introduces visitors, school groups, and community members to the coral reef ecosystem, its threats and what can be done to protect our coastal and marine resources.

The center features a diorama of a healthy reef and a damaged coral reef that identifies commonly found coral species in the Caribbean and conditions needed for healthy coral growth as well as ways the coral reef ecosystem may be harmed as a whole.  A Google Earth© Oceans exhibit enables the viewer to visit coral reefs around the world. A theatre shows daily films related to coastal resource issues. The center is located at the heavily trafficked Historic Seaport in Key West.
