Who we are
Surrounded by blue oceans, coral reefs, and abundant marine life, ReefGuardians is a 501c3 non-profit with offices in Hanalei, Kauai and in Santa Barbara, California. Our mantras are "Reef Preservation through Research and Education,” and “Saving our Oceans, One Reef at a Time." We are dedicated to raising awareness of our valuable marine environment and focus on monitoring the health of our Marine environment and educating tomorrows marine crusaders.
Our mission is to protect the reefs and to inform, educate and create action.
We strive to share all scientific data and results with everyone equally in order to create solutions together. With a better understanding and clear definition of the problems within this fragile ecosystem, we are on the path to creating solutions.
Education is key and participation in Ocean conservation begins with our children. New programs are being planned for K-12 participation and by educating tomorrow's leaders we can ensure the Oceans health for generations to come.
Reef Guardians works with local communities, universities, businesses and governments to monitor the rapid changes within our coastal environments. Using the latest developments in technology, we are putting our minds to the rest to create change.
