ReeFiesta 2023: Let’s Celebrate Our Reefs Together!

by | May 17, 2023 | Events, Scuba Diving, Snorkeling

ReeFiesta with Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire

Celebrate World Reef Awareness Day on June 1st at ReeFiesta 2023!

This is an island-wide, all-day event hosted by Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire (RRFB) in collaboration with 13 partner dive shops. Marking the start of World Oceans Month, World Reef Awareness Day is a chance to recognize the importance of healthy coral reefs and the need for protection and restoration efforts around the world.

“Protecting and restoring our dynamic reefs here on Bonaire takes all of us. The goal of ReeFiesta is to get more of our community involved in coral restoration and give everyone the opportunity to make a positive impact on our reefs!” – Ernst Noyons, Reef Restoration Technician | Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire

ReeFiesta 2023 is a unique opportunity for divers of any skill level to have hands-on coral restoration experience and for non-divers to see our nursery and restoration sites up close. After an educational presentation and training session, RRFB staff and dive instructors will lead a guided snorkel tour and synchronized shore dives across 7 coral nursery sites around Bonaire. Participants will reconvene for an evening celebration on the Buddy Dive beach, where snacks and drinks will be provided.

RRFB is committed to limiting the spread of Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD) throughout Bonaire’s reefs and will require all participants to follow proper gear disinfection protocol by STINAPA.

Registration

In an effort to make coral restoration as accessible as possible and encourage new coral lovers to get involved in restoration efforts, the event is completely FREE for all attendees. Registration is currently open and will close on Monday, May 29th, or when the event capacity is reached. Spots are limited, so sign up now!
