“Today I had unique pleasure of sharing the Fish Reef Project with students at Santa Barbara’s esteemed, Anacapa School. I was deeply impressed by the thoughtfulness, variety and well-reasoned questions that the students asked. It is clear that the Students at Anacapa School are eager to Help Ocean Life Thrive by supporting the Fish Reef Project.”

Fish Reef Project and the Reef Ball Foundation had a splash success at the recent Maritime Alliance summit in San Diego – Reef Ball president, Todd Barber, and Fish Reef Project director, Chris Goldblatt, had a booth and presented slide shows. Support from all sides for making new reefs made a strong showing, including the city and port. San Diego is getting ready to accept larger change in their waters and wants to improve what they call the “Blue Tech Sector” – and Fish Reef Project fits right in!
The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation has agreed to place 4 balls on their enclosed exhibit near the lagoon.

Also, Local School teachers teachers, Gina Woodard, and Lisa Bertoson have rallied grass roots support to build a reef off of Imperial Beach. An Imperial Beach reef is ideally located to provide vital study opportunity for their amazing and determined students.
