The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary has an extensive list of volunteer opportunities like Team OCEAN (Ocean Conservation Education Action Network). Team OCEAN, shown here, is an on-the-water education and information program aimed at protecting the natural marine resources of the Florida Keys, while enriching the experiences of visitors to the Sanctuary. It involves stationing trained volunteer teams at heavily visited reef sites throughout the Keys during peak recreational boating seasons to educate and inform boaters about the unique nature of the coral reef habitat. Team OCEAN volunteers share their knowledge of the best approach to certain areas, demonstrate the use of mooring buoys, and distribute safety information. (photo:Laura Urian - Florida Keys NMS)
